Checking in on Friday once again, this week saw new videos from LA/CA acts Nick Waterhouse, Hanni El Khatib and Cass McCombs. Nick Waterhouse’s Time’s All Gone was released this week, it’s a soul-huggin’ good time of a record with pitch-perfect production. Check out the video for the rollicking “Some Place.”

Hanni El Khatib released a video for “Roach Cock,” a B-side to a limited edition 8” he did with a cover of The Cramps’ “Human Fly.” I think this song rocks harder than anything he’s done yet. Check out his album Will the Guns Come Out for more good times rock ’n’ roll.

Dusky singer-songwriter Cass McCombs released two excellent albums in 2011, Wit’s End and Humor Risk. He follows that prolific output with a song and video inspired by alleged army whistleblower Bradley Manning. Domino has released a 7” of the song. Check out the video below.

Friday: First Fridays @ The Natural History Museum with AA Bondy and Father John Misty (5 p.m., FREE)
Saturday: Washed Out @ The Fonda Theater (8 p.m., $20)
