Desaparecidos – “City On The Hill” Video

Conor Oberst’s reactivated punk band Desaparecidos absolutely destroyed at Coachella the day before yesterday. Today, they’re unveiling the video for “City On The Hill,” the single from their long-awaited sophomore album Payola. For the video, director Rob Stoucy frantically stitched together a ton of old footage, much of it from news broadcasts and commercials. It’s not random, though; there’s a connecting thread. It’s all organized to drive home the idea that the way we live is fucked up and unsustainable. Check it out below.
