"Diamond Sea" (Radio Edit) by Sonic Youth, from the album Washing Machine.

I first heard this song in the winter of 1995, in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. I was with two female coworkers, one of whom was driving us around in her '63 Ford Falcon. She put a tape in the deck bolted underneath the dash. "Who is this?" I asked. "Sonic Youth, their new album," she answered. I'd been a fan since high school, but I hadn't heard it yet. The opening sounds just drilled into my brain and every time I hear them I'm back there in that car, that night.

We got married in 1999. Divorced in 2007. Those are our kids on the beach.

The video was shot in 2012 at El Vado Dam in New Mexico with an Iscorama Cinegon and a Nikon 50mm 1.8 pancake lens on a Canon 60D.
