What is America?

Tubesday - Little Scream, Teleman and The Spook School

Today for #Tubesday we have a trio of infectious videos from the likes of Little Scream, Teleman, and The Spook School.

Experimental multi-instrumentalist Laurel Sprengelmeyer, better known by her stage name Little Scream, has enlisted a Who's Who of indie musicians for her forthcoming Cult Following - Sufjan Stevens, The National's Dessner brothers, Sharon Van Etten, Owen Pallett, and Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio - out May 6 on Merge Records. Check out the video for her first single, "Love as a Weapon". Channeling her inner Prince(ss), this funky, groove-laden track should have you bopping around your cubicle. Catch her on Tax Day, April 15, opening for Thao & the Get Down Stay Down.



Next up is Teleman's "Düsseldorf". This bouncy gem sounds like Belle & Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch fronting OK Go on Kraftwerk-inspired Bowie covers. Their new album, Brilliant Sanity, drops April 8 on Moshi Moshi Records. No word yet on American tour dates for this London trio, but we'll keep you posted as soon as know something.



Finally, we have "Speak When You're Spoken To" by the Scottish group The Spook School. Fresh off an appearance at SXSW, this DIY queer punk band channels the staccato pop of Love Is All and draws inspiration from The Buzzcocks. If this video doesn't have you (gently) headbanging at your desk, chances are that you've already gone down to the local shelter to see about adopting a punk-pop band of your own. Their album, Try to be Hopeful, came out last October on Fortuna POP!
