Damien Jurado Shares “Silver Timothy” Video

Damien Jurado Releases Video for "Silver Timothy" from January's Upcoming "Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son"

Silver Timothy was filmed by Portland-based director Justin Koleszar over the course of three days in and around Terrebonne, Oregon. The video was influenced by classic sci-fi movies like Starman and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Koleszar described the shoot:

We tested our smoke machine in a Walmart parking lot while enjoying some Coors Lights. Our actor Luke Clements almost died when he stumbled on the edge a cliff that overlooked a 1000ft drop.  We found a dozen deer hooves in the middle of the desert and later had dinner at Abby’s Legendary Pizza.

“Silver Timothy” is the first single from Damien Jurado’s upcoming album, Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son, out January 21st (20th in Europe), 2014. Brothers, recorded at National Freedom Studios, was birthed from the deepening partnership between Damien and producer Richard Swift. The record is described by Father John Misty as “a universe unto its own, with its own symbolism, creation myth, and liturgy.”

Misty asks, “Who is this Silver community? Where the hell are they in the Bible? Is this heresy? Agnostic reference? Isn’t this sun business a little, I don’t know, animistic? Pagan? Go ahead and answer that question for yourself. I’ll give you a second.”
