the american dollar

Some time ago I posted an awesome video by the post-rock duo The American Dollar. As I was browsing through their songs on iTunes music store earlier I nearly downloaded their newest album “A Memory Stream” although their self-titled debut album was equally tempting. But then I decided to first take a look at their Myspace website and I was happy to find the possibility there to buy a physical CD bundle for a price inferior to the total amount that would be necessary to pay for the three album downloads at iTunes music store. Finally I have placed my order on the band’s site and added a T-shirt for about the same price I would have had to pay for the downloads alone. Funny how exploring the web a little further may lead to a much bigger reward.

Here is another video with music from the band, it is an animated short film about the departure of an old lady whose granddaughter unsuccessfully attempts to prevent this:
