"In Your Home" is off White Lung’s Deep Fantasy, out now on Domino. The video was created by Justin Gradin and Ben Jacques.

Justin has done all our album art since our first LP so “In Your Home” is funny, demented and uncomfortable, it’s perfect. The star of the video is my dear friend Christina Kenton who pushes the baby cart and smiles at the end. She’s an incredible artist herself. This video is filled with people way more talented than the four of us.

American Football have released a video for “Never Meant,” in support of Polyvinyl’s deluxe edition reissue of their 1999 debut album.

The video for “Never Meant” takes place in Urbana, Illinois circa 1999. The song [is] about breaking up, moving on, and forgetting so I made a story about a brief relationship occurring between two characters at the end of their college experience.  I wanted to craft a story that referenced the original album artwork so we shot in and around the house that appears on the original album cover and used the cover image as a jumping off point for the story.

American Football is available now on 2xLP red vinyl, CD, cassette tape, and digital formats. It comes with expanded packaging, detailed liner notes, and photos by Chris Strong.

The video for Lower’s “Soft Option,” off Seek Warmer Climes, was directed by the band’s own Kristian Emdal, and depicts the band members (?) sitting around awkwardly in what looks like a very nice apartment. Seek Warmer Climes is out June 17 on Matador (also on Escho in Denmark and Big Love in Japan)
