VIDEO// Spakkiano: Macadam

This bizarre video for Spakkianos 'Macadam' is taken from the British Governments Public Information Films collection, and accompanies a suitably bizarre couple of minutes! Hailing from Bologna, Spakkiano's wide-eyed and playfully sparse sensibilities are the soundtrack to determination, provoking not only a sense of absorption but an innately sad loneliness! I watch our protagonist struggle with a road and I see a man whose mind has regressed. A look of child-like frustration plucks at my heartstrings, nostalgia riddled with laughter as an inexplicably funny theatricality makes me chuckle, the percussion tossing my emotions up and down in a manner quite unnerving! Its a wonderful track, so stream 'Macadam' above!
