Frightened Rabbit - “Nothing Like You” Videos

We liked Frightened Rabbit's last two releases and peeps seem to be talking about this song called "Nothing Like You" (and there are two videos) but we're not so sure. What did Pitchfork (er Stereogum...who can tell the difference since 'gums relaunch?) say?
