Video Vacuum Humpday - Errors, White Hills, Frog Eyes, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart

I have a glut of great videos to show you this week, and Im starting strong to get us over the hump that is Wednesday.

First we have Glaswegian sonic manipulators Errors, who have a bizarre video for their new single 'Magna Encarta'. It suits their sound, which is essentially post rock writ large then siphoned through some skewed electronics. Then watch it all from the vantage point of a spaced out rooster. (NB - Errors are about to embark on a tour of North America, so check for dates and times - they are a very good live band to catch!)

Next up are White Hills, and the video for the first song off their upcoming seconf full-length album for Thrill Jockey, H-P1. If 'Condition Of Nothing' is anything to go by, this double LP (out in June) promises to be the best example of what White Hills can do yet, taking us further past the space rock point of no return than ever before. Band member Ego Sensation directed this little twisted opus...

Those Canadian idiosyncratic pop weirdos Frog Eyes have this little elaborate animated flick out for their track 'The Sensitive Girls' off last year's excellent Paul's Tomb: A Triumph. The video was made from just under 1000 hand drawn ink and pencil drawings by London-based Russian artist Marsha Balaeva. Check it out below...

And finally, we posted an interview with Kip from NY sonic popsters The Pains of Being Pure At Heart last week (see it here), so I thought that we should sample this, their latest single of second LP Belong. Its a funny, silly video about guitar store employees - and is just the right side of twee to get me through this morning! That and a fat cup of joe...
