"To Be American," from Gabriel Kahane's 2022 album Magnificent Bird. Kahane both mines and interrogates nostalgia in the song, which he wrote during the roiling, national tumult of October 2020. "It's fitting,” he says, “that a song preoccupied with the past would feature musicians who are some of my oldest friends. This song, as much as any on the album, is a showcase of my musical community." The video, directed by Robert Edridge-Waks, contains excerpts from “ALCF James Kilgore Films Clip 5220” by James Kilgore (CC BY 4.0) and “West Palm Beach FL Candlelight Vigil -Occupy Our Homes- 12-6-2011” by flymaus (CC BY 3.0).
