Watch The Walkmen's Bauer do a Dorothy Gale in the video for Philadelphia Raga

Peter Matthew Bauer's new video for 'Philadelphia Raga' sees him have a Wizard of Oz moment on the streets of Philadelphia. He's driven around on the back of a pick-up in black and white hues before the glorious Technicolor visuals, and melodies, kick in. You can spot Bauer's seven-piece band, including Skye Skjelset (Fleet Foxes), Matt Oliver (TV Torso, Soundteam) and Mickey Walker (Light Heat, Mazarin, The Lillys).

It's the first single from his debut album Liberation!, out on June 16 via Memphis Industries. You can preorder a copy of what is to be "a riot of experiential notions" here.
