Video: Chuck Prophet “Nixonland”

This is how to write a song about history and politics that feels natural and personal.  It reflects the Californian singer-songwriter’s childhood in a Republican household in Nixon’s home town of La Habra.  Aside from the intriguing subject matter, this is a well-crafted, engaging song with Prophet in good form.  The entertaining video for ‘Nixonland’ features comic-strip style animation interspersed with news footage and photos of Nixon.  It’s taken from ‘The Land That Time Forgot’, which drops on August 21st.  Something to look forward to during these strange days.
