good afternoon guys !
Damien Jurado (Seattle) is set to release an album soon, January 21 in North America and January 20 in Europe via Secretly Canadian, and “Silver Timothy” suggests that it will be quite a promising body of work.
The production is smart with airy vocals, multi-tracked to sound like howling wolves, and a minimal percussive support. The song turns from a folk ditty into a full-fledged psych-rock whirlwind, without ever losing its sense of wholeness.
the video is beautiful and inspiring.
While Jurado himself pops by for a moment or two in the desert-set clip, a loose narrative also revolves around a car crash victim stumbling around fields and canyon settings before being transfixed by an unsettling highbeam way up in the sky.
