Ok, so about two months ago Toro y Moi released this really great video for the track How I Know and for some reason it went completely under my radar. The video features three guys who explore a haunted house in the middle of suburbia and it’s a hell of a lot of fun!
Directed by Jordan Kim; the video plays tribute to the goofy horror movies of the late 70s and early 80s and it also adds a healthy dose of Michael Jackson’s Thriller into the mix. Fans of cult horror films might also spot that Kim plays many nice homages to Nobuhiko Obayashi’s classic Hausu and this really adds to the crazy and fun nature of the video. The colors and lighting also really add to the vibe of the piece and they perfectly compliment the late 70’s synthesizer sound of Toro y Moi’s music. How I Know comes from the album Underneath the Pine, which I can imagine will easily be featured in Bobby’s list of Best Albums of the 2011 at the end of the year.
