But as much as the band’s fourth album, American Dream, marks a rebirth, it’s also obsessed with endings: of friendships, of love, of heroes, of a certain type of geeky fandom, of the American dream itself. These are big, serious topics for a project that essentially started as a goof, but it’s the direction Murphy has taken since Sound of Silver’s Someone Great combined his affection for bubbling synths with a poignancy about the fleeting nature of life. Take album opener Oh Baby, Murphy’s attempt at the type of unsettlingly pretty tick-tick slow burner that turned Suicide into subversive NYC icons. The song is decidedly mid-tempo. And Murphy isn’t rambling here-he’s crooning. It’s a breakup song (Murphy went through a divorce around the time LCD disbanded in 2011) stuck somewhere between a bad dream and reality.
American Dream is an expression often used to describe the vital ideals of the US population in both the material and spiritual senses. The American dream is the ideal of freedom and opportunity, the spiritual power of the nation. If the American system is a skeleton of US policy, the American dream is its soul. The source of the phrase American Dream is considered to be The Epic of America (1931), historical treatise by James Adams written during the Great Depression. He states: The American Dream is that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement. It is a difficult dream for the European upper classes to interpret adequately, and too many of us ourselves have grown weary and mistrustful of it.
The American Dream today has drifted away from that envisioned by the Founding Fathers. Before looking at what the American Dream is today, we need to look at its roots. Our Founding Fathers introduced the revolutionary idea that each person's desire to pursue their idea of happiness was not self-indulgence, but a necessary driver of a prosperous society. They created a government to defend that right for everyone.
Culture Music Art American dream Twitter. I refuse to believe album art is dead. Sure, the album's reign may have given way to streaming platforms and the increasingly problematic playlist, but album (or, more commonly, single) artwork still plays a huge role in how we interpret the music we're listening to, whether it is on our iPhone screens or a now-permanent part of the internet lexicon
