This is what our lives are like now: new video starts, atmospheric shot, clouds, some static overlay. We spend the first 45 seconds of every montage trying to guess the stock footage keywords on archive.org. It’s a sad way of life, and when we’re wrong— when there’s a proper director culling original footage, when there’s productive thought besides typing— we feel like dicks. Grant Nitsch shot and edited “Freedom from Fear” for Megafortress HIMSELF, it’s truly beautiful and we’re sorry we thought that way. That last tease out the window after the screen fades to black was really refreshing. You can download “Freedom from Fear” among a dozen other solo-drone sometimes-vocal space jams at Megafortress’s Soundcloud.
