>be me, 4th grade social outcast
>really into dinosaurs, collected a shitload of dinosaur books and figures
>during recess, would always pretend to be a dinosaur
>would make a peace sign with fingers curved, looked like a claw
>would make hissing sounds to replicate raptor noises
>chase around random girls on the playground, acting like a raptor
well, one motherfucking day
>chasing girls around, pick out this qt3.14
>chase her, she playfully screams and runs away laughing
>do this for about 5min
>girl’s boyfriend thought i was bullying her, or being mean
>comes over to me, and asks me why im being mean to his girl
keep in mind this was the 4th motherfucking grade
>runs up and pushes me down
>SCREEEEEEEEEE (my raptor yell)
>stand back up and like charge at him, head down
>hit him in the gut, knocks him down
>SCREEEEEEEEE
>stand over him, claw at him with my “talons”
this did practically nothing but hurt a little maybe
>snap a couple times
>SCREEEEEEEEEEE
>bend down over him, and literally bite his fucking cheek as hard as I could
>leave blood marks and he screams in pain
>SCRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>he turns on his right side, hand over his cheek
>see his ear
>bite the shit out of it, rip off a small chunk
REEEYAAAAAAAAAAAA
>teacher pulls me off
>escorts me to the office, calls the police and ambulance for the kid
>im sitting here walking through the office like a badass dinosaur
>got to the office
>teacher told me im probably going to be going away for a long time
>she opens the door, didn’t get on the floor, but literally walked the dinosaur

just kidding

>takes me in
>get charges
>parents pay a couple thousand for hospital bills
>had to see a psych until like 16
>kid moved away

Alice Costelloe and Kacey Underwood are Big Deal; a duo embracing a shoegaze/indiepop/janglepop sound ala Dum Dum Girls, Veronica Falls and other recent bands. This track, along with their fantastic, recently released album ‘June Gloom’ sees them coming to the forefront of this movement. Welcoming in its simplicity and evocative in its approach, you can stream the album on spotify or purchase it from their facebook/band website. 

One of the best songs on Big Deal’s forthcoming second record.

"I’ve been dreaming of dropping out…"

Perfection.

Big Deal - Teradactol

Teradactol' is a track from the forthcoming second Big Deal album due Spring 2013 on Mute Records. The video, directed by Joey Ryken came about after discussions with the band and their shared esoteric interests…

"In the end", explain Big Deal “We settled on a sort of alien transmission via dreamachine.”
