DAMIEN JURADO | Nothing Is the News (Video)

January 13, 2012 at 8:53 pm Leave a comment


One of music’s best singer-songwriters Damien Jurado is back, channeling ghosts of words and Neil Young, with a new video for an explosive 60s blues guitar-influenced song called “Nothing Is the News”. The track will be on his forthcoming LP release, “Maraqopa”, out February 21st via Secretly Canadian. The new record follows 2011’s “Live at Landlocked”, and 2010’s “Saint Bartlett”, a dark American pilgrimage of whirling-by landscapes, set amid somber storytelling and beautiful reflection. “Nothing Is the News” begins with these cryptic verses: “Turned it around, you found that they were all wrong / All you that heard, the ghosts of the words in a song / Nothing to have when all that you want is gone.” The song is flat-out wonderful. Listen to all that rising chaos of sonic noise, organ, and guitars from the 2:56 mark to 3:40, and that wild screech at 3:19. And then how the whole thing seems to disintegrate into a scattering of dissonance, scrapes and feedback. It’s a nasty bit of genius. Read archived Their Bated Breath posts about Jurado here. Note: Video directed by William Winchester Claytor. — David D. Robbins Jr.
