We seemed to have received a whole bunch of interesting, oddball, sweet, and unusual videos recently.

Here’s the pick of the bunch…

Fresh from supporting Frankie & The Heartstrings and Summer Camp and receiving praise from the likes of The Guardian, Snipe and NME, Big Deal’s debut single Homework is finally out this week on limited 7” through Records, Records, Records, Records. They have released a beautiful first music video to accompany the record.

Hailing from Texas, Josh T. Pearson first gained people’s attentions with his former band, the short-lived phenomenon that was Lift to Experience. The collective only released one sprawling masterpiece, 2001’s The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads, before splitting up shortly thereafter.  They were so beloved by John Peel that he had them record three sessions in five months and were included in the Best 125 Peel Sessions of all time. Since then, Josh T. Pearson has spent many years in the wilderness, only releasing one studio recording, I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry, a split 7” single with the Dirty Three and appearing on Bat for Lashes album Fur and Gold on the track, Trophy.

Last of the Country Gentlemen will be his debut solo album on Mute Records. Watch an exclusive Parisian rooftop performance of Woman When I’ve Raised Hell.

Top folkies, The Woodlands have released a new music video for In The Dark On Monday.  Vintage shop, book carnage, paper salvage, sewing machine, footwork, fast-motion melee.

This is the video for Lucky You by Los Angeles based band Le Rev, who penned all their songs together and coined a unique sound that’s been described as Blondie meets Blonde Redhead.

Whales In Cubicles formed in late 2009, and take an explosively melodramatic punk approach to pop-song-writing. They’re acerbic, morose and volatile. A dusty and hazy freakout that does no small justice to their love of cutting alternative heroes; The Pixies, Sonic Youth, Pavement and Dinosaur Jr. See the evidence for yourself with this video for debut single 100 Years of Solitary Franchising
