Big Deal plays off that boy-girl "are they a couple?" mythos, but unlike friends and lovers like Tennis and Summer Camp, they have a teacher/pupil relationship. Different! Kacey Underwood and Alice Costelloe (one Yankee, one Brit) got together when Kacey (29) started teaching Alice (18) Dinosaur Jr. songs on the guitar. Now the duo make aerated acoustic jams together, without the clutter of a bothersome rhythm section, instead opting for intimacy and vocal emphasis with minimal guitar fuzz accents. It makes for an intensely personal aesthetic, so it's only fitting the video for their latest single, "Talk" (off their debut LP Lights Out, available now) features some pretty intense invasion of personal space. Yes you guessed it, ad hoc surgery in someone's kitchen.
