We are big fans of Toro Y Moi in our studio but we had no idea until we stumbled upon this video that Urban Outfitters had started producing music videos (and some pretty good ones at that).

Sometimes you come across so much good stuff all at once it’s hard to know where to look. Such is the case with this little treasure over at yourstru.ly, an oh-so-very SF music and film blog that features the work of my new art crush, Heidi Petty. Also based in San Francisco, Petty’s work is a great aesthetic blend of woolly film stock and digital, although the stand out is this intimate piece for Toro Y Moi, aka Chazwick Bundick (seriously?).Mr. Bundick’s music is on pretty heavy rotation here at the CTT studio. That chillwave vibe was definitely the trend of 2010, but damn it melts your core. So check the vid, give a nod to Brian Wilson, the originator of multi-layered chill and enjoy some good old fashioned music and video.
