Damien Jurado and Richard Swift

Other Peoples Songs Volume One


Over the weekend of August 21-22, 2010, not long after Damien Jurado and Richard Swift first collaborated to produce Damien’s 2010 record, Saint Bartlett, the pair hunkered down with a 4- track recorder and one Coles 4038 ribbon microphone to record a collection of cover songs that run the gamut from John Denver to Chubby Checker to Kraftwerk. The timing was perfect. On Other People’s Songs Volume One one can see the scaffolding of what would become a creative turning point for the pair - later seen with the release of Damien Jurado’s Maraqopa, the first record in his Maraqopa trilogy - less than two years later. The opening drum hits of Be Not So Fearful, the falsetto vocals of Sweetness and the Spaghetti-Western swing of Radioactivity are, by now, hallmarks of the Jurado / Swift sound but Other People’s Songs Volume One is a transitional fossil, a marking of the pair’s collaborative evolution.
This is the first time Other People’s Songs Volume One is available on CD and LP
