After his celebrated second album »Underneath The Pine«, Chaz Bundick promptly comes up with this half-hour compilation of older songs, which can sure enough be called a real Mini-Album. »June 2009« doesn´t only proof that these songs still mean a lot to him, but they all sound like the situation he was in at that time: Literally just out of Art School, everything was possible; the pressure to make decisions for his career was there, but it wasn´t decided yet in which direction this road was going to take him. Journal-like lyrics describe impressions between insecurity and euphoria and are recited with a charming shoo. The Chillwave-approach of his first album »Causers Of This« is still audible in an early version of »Talamak«, but you can most of all hear his closeness to Ariel Pink: Beach Boys-melodies, Lo-Fi-productions and the habit to use rather one idea too many in a song than one too little – all of this shows the vicinity of Toro y Moi to the weirdo from Los Angeles. The similarities to the second album, which sounds a lot more organic, was already obvious in June 2009. Last but not least, there is even space for a last acoustic ballad presented in Christian salvation-pathos.
