Armed, for the most, with a guitar and his soaring, at times Elliott Smith-redolent voice, Doylestown, PA’s Damien DeRose records under the moniker Peasant. His official “debut” full-length On The Ground came out at the end of January (he self-released another collection Fear Not, Distant Lover in 2005). If you haven’t heard DeRose yet, take a look at the Chris Carey-directed video for “We’re Good,” where we find DeRose living with his lady in the middle of the woods and seeing the distance that’s grown between them suddenly get filled by a big ol’ bear. Point being: No, we’re not good. It was shot in Savannah, GA at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
The song was also used in a Jon Hill-directed Lincoln advertisement, which you can see over at cbs.com. You can also listen to the song without pictures:
