In the video for “Insufficiently Breathless,” the latest from the Bethesda, MD post-rockers Trans Am, we open on an elegiac image: A stick combs through dirt clumps, followed by tattooed hands hollowing out a clearing for a small piece of wood. A forlorn bedraggled man wanders through sunlit woods, observing the creatures there, over a spacious and becalmed piece of music that taps a rich vein of melancholy. The song is gorgeous, and the album it is from, this year’s Volume X, is well worth checking out. Volume X out now in Thrill Jockey.
