VOTD: Toro Y Moi, 'How I Know'

Like an episode of ‘Scooby-Doo’ soundtracked by chillwave.

So the guy who plays Lindsay Lohan’s memorable gay friend in “Mean Girls” goes into a haunted house accompanied by his two hipster buddies, and they all get murdered by a couple of indie QT ghosts, but it’s OK! ’Cause they’re QTs!

“Now we’re all ghosts, let’s dance!” they seem to say. All this one’s missing is an appearance by one Scrappy Cornelius Doo.

VOTD: Mountain Man climbs Pitchfork

Not actually mountain men.

Listening to female minimalist vocal trio Mountain Man is more than a little awe-inspiring. Their a cappella harmonizing layers and interweaves upon itself, knitting an old-fashioned sonic patchwork.

Actually watching them perform, however, compares to looking up at a family of well-trained acrobats at the circus, back-flipping off tightropes, tossing and catching each other while the trapeze zooms around the tent.

And they’re kinda cute, sweaty hipster chicks, so that’s nice, too. Here’s “Holy Father,” performed impromptu in a tunnel at this year’s Newport Folk Festival.
