Steve Erickson's music-history road-trip through a ruptured America
Its 2021. A black sister and her white brother are driving from LA to Michigan to see their mother when the Twin Towers materialise in South Dakota. The decide to take a diversion.
Listening to the twin playlists their Dad made in September 2011, they begin an epic road-trip through an American in Disunion. History has been diverted. Instead of Elvis, America got his stillborn twin Jesse. The Beatles didn't happen. John Kennedy no longer a President. It's a world where atrocities happen and music is slowly disappearing.
