American Mars, “Better Angels” (Gangplank, 2007)

What if you were a floating torso, and lost your legs? What if you were just a pair of stems, without a body to hold onto? These questions and more are explored in the new video for “Better Angels” from Detroit’s American Mars — stalwarts who champion Being There-era Wilco and the greater parts of the Ryan Adams collection better than just about anybody else out there; better, perhaps, than Being There-era Wilco and Ryan Adams themselves. We don’t want to give away any of the video’s secrets, but just know that there is a bike riding scene that rivals anything out of Rad and Breaking Away, albeit a bit more rustic. — Ryan Allen
