New Jennifer O’Connor Video – “Always In Your Mind”

Amrit Singh | August 20, 2008 - 10:44 am

Jennifer O’Connor’s just your average singing/songwriting type, getting called up to cover Dylan at Lincoln Center here, knocking out an album with producer John Agnello in 12 days there. Her new album Here With Me’s out this week via Matador, and on its first official video, director Zacarias Bezunartea plays out the tune full of relationship stalemates with the relatable stress, and mental and spatial chess, of sitting stranded in the kitchen with the one that’s always in your mind but never really there. And this is Brooklyn, so don’t say that “she could always just live alone.” Do you know how high rent is here?

Here With Me is out now via Matador. She talks a bit about the record (with Yo La’s James McNew at her side and asking some Qs) in this clip. The title track’s my favorite (and a little sunnier if “Always” has you taking inventory of your own kitchen mess):
