“QACHINA” by Damien Jurado

“QACHINA” is off Damien Jurado’s album Visions of Us On The Land which is out tomorrow via Secretly Canadian.

“QACHINA” video director James Halland notes, “My goal with the music video was to make the viewer feel like they are watching a fever dream. We spent 4 days wandering the desert filming everywhere from Joshua Tree to Salton Sea. My goal was to use everyday people, objects and places to make it unsettling but not scary.” Jurado adds, “The video was shot on film and a Super 8 camera. Jordan worked a lot from the imagery seen on the album cover. It is captured as a wonderful psychedelic interpretation of what I feel is the spirit, and at times, open-ended, colorful feeling of this new album.”

Visions of Us on the Land is the final installment of Jurado’s trilogy, which began with 2012’s Maraqopa and continued with 2014s Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son. Visions is the last part of the story, which began when a character had to disappear from society in order to discover some universal truths. At this point, the individual has been left behind, by an earth now vacant. Visions was produced by label mate and super-producer Richard Swift at the latters National Freedom recording facility in rural Oregon.
