Damien Jurado’s music is cinematic in itself. It paints landscapes that are stark and unfamiliar but beautiful. It provokes emotion, introspection and consideration. The last installation of what accidentally became a trilogy is titled, Visions of Us on the Land and includes the track, “Exit 353.”
The music video was directed and conceptualized by Elise Tyler. The video depicts two female characters exposed, in need. Jurado picks the two up on the side of the road, offering blind compassion only to realize that, as Tyler puts it:
“…that he should have never been seduced back into society, that he was and is alone among men.”
Visions of Us on the Land is due out on March 18th on Secretly Canadian.
