Back in 2016, Toro y Moi drove out to the remote Californian desert of Trona Pinnacles with his band to play a live concert. After a three-year-long wait, the singer-songwriter has finally released new visuals for the set.

The video kicks off with a wide pan of the desert landscape, followed by fuzzy lo-fi clips of a team of technicians building the stage — set up for 360-degrees of coverage. The first song the band plays is “What You Want,” which is also the track that kicks off What For?, Toro y Moi’s fourth studio LP from 2015. The instrumental arrangements sound slightly different from the original recording, with the addition of new equipment and subtle tuning — this time around Chaz Bundick is accompanied by four bandmates: percussions, guitar, keyboard and bass. Doused in funky bass lines and tinny guitar riffs, “Buffalo” is the next song on the set list, followed by other tracks like “Still Sound,” “Half Dome,” “Grown Up Calls” and “Lilly.” Playing into the night, the session comes full circle as the band finishes off the session with “Yeah Right,” which is the last song on What For?

Scroll up for a look at Toro y Moi’s new visuals of 2016’s Trona Pinnacles set.

Elsewhere, Chronixx has tapped Sampa the Great for a visceral remix of “Black Is Beautiful.”
