John Heart Jackie – “Working Titles” (Damien Jurado cover)
Seemingly everyone’s favorite song from Damien Jurado’s Maraqopa, every time I listen to “Working Titles” it gets me. Jurado’s recording and Richard Swift’s falsetto are so well matched and also so outside of the norm. That this song might have nearly the same effect when sung by others though? Unexpected as it may be, John Heart Jackie’s version got me this morning. These two understand just how much those spine-tingling harmonies matter, and are obviously just as much in love with this song as we are.
