NPR Music is currently streaming Lift, the first single from Seattle doom metal band Dust Moth’s new record Scale.

Damien Jurado Premieres New Single

sc335-dj-lp-fc-1425_sq-3529d2f3fc24c2d15abf98ef60ccc5e7e7fd3bea-s400-c85
Damien Jurado’s new record Visions Of Us On The Land comes out March 18, 2016 on Secretly Canadian Records. Today he’s premiered the first single from that record, Exit 353, at NPR Music. Here’s Jurado on Exit 353:

“‘Exit 353’ was the first song I wrote for this new album, and I initially wasn’t sure about it. When it came time for me to be in the studio, sitting in front of the microphone, I hesitated as to whether or not I would actually perform it once I received the signal from Richard [Swift] that we were recording. I over-counted the beginning and just sang it through. When the take was finished, Richard turned to me and said, ‘I think this could be a great single.’ Living in the fresh uncertainty of what I had just recorded, I just had to lean into it and trust his instinct.”

Go check the song out at http://www.npr.org/sections/allsongs/2015/12/15/459771535/song-premiere-damien-jurado-exit-353
