Damien Jurado- “Arkansas” (Music Video)


Damien Jurado’s been at this songwriting thing a while now, quietly and consistently releasing a string of solid to stellar records over the past twelve years or so. Saint Bartlett, the ninth in that procession, was released last month on Secretly Canadian and includes some of the more adventurous production we’ve heard out of Jurado’s camp in recent years thanks to the touch of Richard Swift. “Arkansas,” however, sticks to the tried and true; its piano line playing out like Prom Theme,1957. It’s recast here as a murder ballad of sorts, Jurado playing the part of the conscience-tortured guilty.
