on the road

The fabled summer sun, the open road, gas prices that are less than astronomicalit all adds up to the temptation of a road trip. Anni Rossi's new video for "The West Coast" captures that allure perfectly, in hushed golden tones, with slow motion snapshot scenes of looming trucks and the murmur of a distant ocean.

Time slows to a crawl and speeds up into a frenzy of blurring lights to capture the distorted anachronisms that crop up when you're stuck in a car for countless hours. Rossi's lilting voice lazes with all the unhurried splendor of cloud formations in the distance but her viola informs you of the speed limit, and what lies beyond it. The song itself might be a short one, but it's just enough to ignite some Kerouac-style wanderlust and earn itself a place on whatever infinite playlist you craft to accompany you on cross-country misadventures. -Nina Mashurova
