    Toro Y Moi—real name Chaz Bear—is the latest musician to appear on NPR’s Tiny Desk performance series.

    The producer performed four stripped-back cuts from his latest album, Outer Peace. Bear took to the office space alongside a four-piece band, which included Foots from alt R&B duo Foots x Coles, opening with “Laws of the Universe.” The downtempo “New House” followed, before they segued into “Freelance.” He then finished the set with a groovy rendition of “Ordinary Pleasure.”
