New York’s SAVAK are proud to announce the self-directed video for “I Left America” from the album Cut-Ups (Ernest Jenning Record Co.).

Utilizing clips from nearly 50 films of late-19th and early-20th century documentation of immigrants, laborers, soldiers, camps and factories in America (all courtesy of the Library of Congress),the band edited together an abstract narrative to reflect the humanity and struggle of the American experience. It’s a great tune to boot.
