It's Shred Yr Face Week here at Strange Glue so go ahead and grab that cheese-grater and let's get started.

All jokes aside, we're pretty serious about providing you guys with some great content over the course of the week and so in an extra special, Shred Yr Face Video Of The Week feature, we've decided to share not one, not two but three entire videos with you. 

All three vids will of course link to the three chosen Shred Yr Face bands - Espers, Woods and The Cave Singers - and all are guaranteed to blow your mind, one after the other (or is that shred yr mind?).

First up is Espers who managed to catch up with Practice Space back in 2007 for a interview and a live performance. It's nice to see them early on their career and yet still complete with that otherwordly sound they so easily seem to conjure.

Next up is Woods who performed an acoustic session in France back in April where they performed the fantastic Twisted Tongue amongst other songs. Though they're pretty lo-fi on CD, it's refreshing to see them so subdued and gentle without any electric.

Last but most certainly not least is The Cave Singers whom released their newest and second long-player Welcome Joy back in August of this very year. Their blend of deserted, barren folk and emotional lyricism is even more hard-hitting on stage as this video of Helen recorded live at The Cargo last year will show you.

Think you can find a better video? Share it with us or just let us know what you thought by commenting below. 

Happy Shrding.
