“Omaha” is Toro Y Moi’s contribution to the “Our First 100 Days” compilation, which aims to raise funds and awareness for organizations supporting causes that are under threat by the proposed policies of the current US government. The track is being released alongside a music video featuring a Rube Goldberg machine, directed by Justin Morris and starring Chaz Bundick of Toro Y Moi.

Last year, Chaz Bundick hiked to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite Park, the inspiration for his song “Half Dome” (off this year’s What For?), where he happened to meet R. Adam Prieto, a photographer and, coincidentally, a Toro y Moi fan. Chaz invited Prieto to create a music video for ‘Half Dome,’ and this spectacular clip is the result.
Check out the beautiful scenery in “Half Dome” here. The track was taken from the band’s album, What For?, available now on the Carpark shop and iTunes. Video was directed by R. Adam Prieto
