The tangled web we weave.
Arbitrary goals, invented glory, permanent brain damage.
Life without the hassle of living.
From here to there, but never back again.

Composer/Musician Dan Deacon (Bromst, America) teams up with Director/Editor Dave Hughes (Off The Air/Adult Swim) to create a 22 minute music video odyssey that takes viewers on a skewed trip through the American landscape and beyond. The music is the four part USA suite, off Deacon's latest album America, and the visuals were culled from artists all over the world.
Everything will be ok. The natural feeling of dread.
Collect them all. Like smells for your eyeballs.
They don't only happen while you're sleeping. You're having one right now.
Brighter than a thousand digital suns.
