8-18-08 Negativland – Aluminum or Glass

Posted by Sean on August 18, 2008

The always reliable Vicki Bennett, aka People Like Us, reminded me of this song on her WFMU show Do or DIY today. It’s Negativland’s Aluminum or Glass, off their 2007 album Our Favorite Things. It has a wonderful springtime sound to me –¬†maybe because I stumbled across it in the spring when I was coming out of my latest depression. I’m sure Negativland had a culture-jamming message about advertising and such when they wrote Aluminum or Glass, and I appreciate that. But I also appreciate the fact that it makes me happy.

This video is directed by Tim Maloney. Have you heard that name on this blog before? Perhaps you have.
