While the music of Castanets is nothing like that of Japan's Cornelius—the bearded American thing was a dead giveaway—this new video for “On Beginning” (from Texas Rose, The Thaw, & The Beasts, which just so happens to be out today) feels very much like something Cornelius would come up with. It's a gorgeous clip of textural blasts of color and a nice minimalist design aesthetic to accompany the bleak chirps of electronics that pepper the song. I just watched it twice and might go for thirds.
