Videos for a Lazy Saturday: Reuben Hollebon’s ‘Faces’ (Damian Taylor Mix)

English musician/producer/engineer Reuben Hollebon has unveiled the video for ‘Faces’ from his debut album Terminal Nostalgia, out on May 20 via Bright Antenna Records/Fontana North.

Hollebon drew on his experiences as a recording engineer for artists such as  Imogen Heap, Courtney Barnett and The London Symphony Orchestra.

“The song comes from a good truth that when we eat together it benefits us all, calmly desperate for less segregation,” he explained in a statement. “And when we die we return to resting together before the next happening, regardless of belief. The music spins and cycles with this.”

He also shared the video for ‘Common Table’ from the album;

Catch Reuben Hollebon on the following dates;

April 26th – Denver, CO @ Lost Lake
May 4th – Hollywood, CA @ Hotel Cafe

Videos for a Lazy Saturday: Cheerleader’s ‘The Sunshine of Your Youth’

Philadelphia’s Cheerleader has shared the video for the title track from their forthcoming debut album The Sunshine of Your Youth, out on May 19 on Bright Antenna Records/Fontana North.

The title of the album is ironic according to the band; “We actually wrote these songs at a time in our lives when we were dealing with some heavy personal stuff. It’s there if you really want to listen for it, but for us, the title is more about a state of mind than a particular time in your life… how no matter what’s going on, life can be full of wonder and beauty, as long as you’re open to these things,” Joe Heller explained in a statement.

Cheerleader recorded the album at East/West Studio in LA. It was produced by Mark Needham, who has been a fan of the band since their earliest days. Many of their early demos found their way onto the album and it still retains the lo-fi aesthetic of their early recordings.

The band has been together since the early 2000’s when they started out in Chris Duran’s parent’s basement. Since then, they’ve survived going to college and moving to different states.
