VIDEO VIDEO // Cayucas Premiere “High School Lover” at SPIN, Announce Debut Album ‘BIGFOOT’ – Out April 30

Cayucas are coming at you with their awesome new video for “High School Lover,” starring lead singer Zach Yudin and his band: Ben Yudin on bass (twin brother to Zach), Banah Winn on keys and Casey Wojtalewicz on drums. Missing in the action is guitar player Christian Koons. Although the video isn’t a complete narrative, Director Cameron Dutra called on the song’s origin when putting it all together. He tells us “‘High School Lover’ is about a girl who would write Zach love letters, yet he would never respond despite actually liking her back. I tried to abstract the idea of a high school girl’s notebook with doodles and sketches into stop motion graphics and titles.” Watch above!

“High School Lover” is found on Cayucas’s debut album, Bigfoot – out officially on April 30! Check out the album artwork above and the tracklisting below! Bigfoot was produced by none other than Richard Swift (record at his studio too!).

2. High School Lover

Jens Lekman Premieres Video for “Erica America,” Announces U.S. Tour with Taken By Trees

Jens Lekman premiered his new video for “Erica America” earlier this morning on SPIN. Marc Hogan writes, “His head freshly shaved, his attire unusually dark and drab, the Swedish singer and songwriter brings the exquisite heartbreak of ‘Erica America’ to life beside a dingy, turquoise-hued freight elevator in the song’s starkly arresting new video.” You can watch the Marcus Soderlund directed video above. The first single off of Jens’s I Know What Love Isn’t, you can purchase “Erica America” today from Amazon and iTunes.
