Damien Jurado – “Over Rainbows and Rainier” from “The Horizon Just Laughed”, out May 4th, 2018 on Secretly Canadian
Directed by Jordan Halland
Cinematography by Jordan Halland, Trevor Groth
Like previous albums, “The Horizon Just Laughed” started with a dream – though that’s where things change, as they often do. It is Damien Jurado’s first self-produced album in a 20+ year career, more personal and more rooted than even his Maraqopa trilogy, as though after so much time on the road he’s stumbled upon his home.
The album feels like a beautiful collage — its narrative pieced together through letters and postcards, with each part contributing to its greater whole, and providing snapshots of ones journey to find a sense of place and connection to a changing world.
