Today, dear friends and music lovers, we have four videos to help you wind down the rest of your day with. One of them features an old woman. Another features a glittery bathtub. Yet another, children playing Radiohead. Enjoy.

Holocombe Waller - "Qu'Appelle Valley, Sasketchewan"

We are bookending this edition of the Video Roundup with cover songs. The first is this take on the Buffy Sainte-Marie song about, yes, a valley in Sasketchewan, which is featured on Holcombe's recent album Into The Dark Unknown. It's quite a stirring song, almost bettering the caterwauling and tribal rhythm thing that has been getting tUnE-yArDs so much attention. The video is as striking and haunting as the song itself.

Goldmund - All Will Prosper video preview

If you want to get a real sense of just how haunting and beautiful that Keith Kenniff's upcoming collection of songs from the Civil War era (we featured a track from it last week as a Cut of the Day) just check out this little preview video put together by the people at Western Vinyl. Looks like it's being piped in from America's collective unconscious.

Guidance Counselor - "Brooklyn"

What do you do when you're gearing up to move out of the state for the Bay Area, abandoning your apartment in your wake? Fill the bathtub with water and glitter and record a session for Into The Woods, of course! At least that's what the boys in Guidance Counselor did as they wrapped up a fine electro pop career here in Portland, with Ian Anderson heading to San Francisco with his new project, Feelings. I can only hope he left all the glitter in the bathroom after he moved out. Screw the cleaning deposit, am I right?!!?

School of Rock Orchestra - "Airbag"

Our last video and our last cover song is one done by the young musical students from the School of Rock. This video that was posted recently on YouTube comes from their show where they covered the magnum opus OK Computer in its entirety. And as you'll see from the video below of them tackling the album's lead off track, they did a fantastic job. So fantastic, in fact, that they'll be doing it again on October 22nd at The Woods.
