A midlife crisis in middle America. Picture families going off the rails, slowly but surely. Cheating husbands, controlling mothers, delinquent sons and rebellious daughters. Put them in a pressure cooker situation or put them on a low heat and watch the frogs boil to death. Reminiscent of the themes in American Beauty, The Ice Storm and August, Osage County. American Complexity weaves itself into the fabric of a crumbling society. Four themes with lots of variants and a couple of beds to play with too. Available in high quality MP3 format. For AIFF or WAV you'll need to buy a different license.
