Damien Jurado – “Arkansas” Video

By brandon / June 10, 2010

A couple of months ago I suggested considering Damien Jurado’s words on holy experiences and unknown darkness when listening to his ninth album Saint Bartlett. It provides a framework. As an example, the collection’s lead track “Arkansas” raises some questions/answers if you go that route:

Is love a “holy” experience? Sure. Is Arkansas a person or a place? Both and more. And, why the “aw man” when we fade out and the credits roll? It’s up to you to fill-in the finale.

I wrote that before the Lance Alton Troxel and Ulysses///Onasis-directed video for the track filled-in the finale.

Saint Bartlett is out 5/25 via Secretly Canadian. Take another listen to “Cloud Shoes,” too.
