DESCRIPTION Vinyl LP pressing. Speaking about the films that influenced his fourteenth album, the solitary masterwork In the Shape of a Storm, Damien Jurado tosses out a list of favorites – American Graffiti, Paris, Texas, The Last Picture Show – films in which settings serve as silent, omniscient characters. But inquire about the curious way he writes songs, the hazy manner by which he seems to channel them from beyond the beyond, and the cinematic reference point he reaches for is a surprising one. “You ever see that movie Ghost? Whoopi Goldberg’s character, Oda Mae Brown – that’s who I am. These spirits are showing up at her door, jumping into her body. That’s how I feel. I don’t know what’s coming out of me… I just show up and deliver it.” These are songs about the enormity of the unknown – the shape of storms that threaten to swallow us whole – and above all, they are songs about the connections that keep us from drifting away. “We are not meant to be on our own,” Jurado sings on “Throw Me Now Your Arms.” In The Shape Of A Storm Artist: Damien Jurado Format: LP Release Date: 4/26/2019 LABEL: Mama Bird UPC: 734038993835 Genre: Rock, Folk, World, & Country Style: Acoustic Tracklist A1 Lincoln A2 Newspaper Gown A3 Oh Weather A4 South A5 Throw Me Now Your Arms B1 Where You Want Me To Be B2 Silver Ball B3 The Shape Of A Storm B4 Anchors B5 Hands On The Table
