Music Video of the Day: American Slang by The Gaslight Anthem (2010, dir by Kevin J. Custer)


I have to admit that one of the main reasons that I picked this video is because, assuming everything goes as scheduled, Jeff and I will be returning home on this day.  (I’m writing this on February 20th, just to provide some context for you.)  I wanted to pick a video for a song that has the word “American” in the title.

With all that in mind, though, American Slang is a good video for a good song from a good album by a good band.  The song and the video take a look at the contrast between the American dream and what, for many, is the American reality.  Myself, I just like the look of this video.  New York is beautiful in black-and-white.

Enjoy!
