Another nicely directed video for Toro Y Moi by director Jon Casey. Apparently, “talamak” is the Tagalog word for “chronic.” The video was shot in Columbia, SC.

Toro Y Moi – “Blessa” – The updated lead track to the forthcoming album Causers of This (the first of two this year!) now has an official video. Appropriately blissed out and chill (wave).
Beach House – “Silver Soul” – Taken from the accompanying DVD to the ridic awesome, potential top 5 album Teen Dream.
ODDSAC – The “trailer” for the Animal Collective “movie” that debuted at Sundance last night.

Toro Y Moi is releasing two albums next year, and the first one Cause of This drops on February 23, 2010 (birthday present, anyone?). Here is the album art as well as an updated version of the opening track “Blessa”, the original of which I included on my Seersucker Porn mix from the summer.

From the great show last night. Don’t ask me why this one came out the way it did.
