Swings And Roundabouts

To prove you can shoot an indie video pretty much solely in a play park, here's the Joy Formidable on seesaws:


That should keep me noise-popped up until The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart LP turns up on my doorstep. Alarmingly, they're giving away the excellent track above and all the rest of the album for free on mp3 here

And now, here's King Creosote mostly on some roundabouts: 


King Creosote has signed with the amazing Domino for his next LP, due April, which should be just fab. 

If anyone can think of any other videos that feature play parks, please post in the comments, or any other tenuous music links at all really. What would you like to see? Beth Ditto on a trampoline? Joy Division on those wee animals on springs? Belle and Sebastian on monkeybars?

Ian McCulloch - Sliding. With Chris Martin on backing vocals - so you're sure to love every minute. Also has a tune called Playgrounds & City Parks on the same album.

I like Tom Waits' I don't Want to Grow Up. Not a playground, exactly, but he's riding a bike...well, take a look...
