Dan Deacon Goes Time-Lapse in Blissed-Out 'Guilford Avenue Bridge' Video

See America in electronic savant's latest 'America' video

Marc Hogan

Time-lapse videos have become a common choice for indie-leaning artists recently. Yo La Tengo and Beach House have each used the technique for music videos in the past month or so, and a year ago Animal Collective documented their studio time that way. As Pitchfork points out, Dan Deacon now has a time-lapse video for "Guilford Avenue Bridge," an artfully spazzy electronic track from his 2012 album America. Director Alan Resnick uses footage from three months past fall, which mostly means footage of the brainy Baltimore party-starter and crew criss-crossing the country. But the clip really comes alive around the three-minute mark, when we see the frenzied, participatory crowd at a Deacon live show: America, the beautiful.
