The Pacific Northwest has recently become a rich source of folk-influenced indie rock. One of the pioneers of this movement (and bona fide legend of the genre) is Seattle resident, Damien Jurado. The Seattle Times has today unveiled a great cover of “Beacon Hill” (one of my favourite tracks from Jurado’s 2010 release Saint Bartlett) by Jon Russell, a member of the increasingly popular (and also Seattle-based) folksters The Head and The Heart.
Damien Jurado’s new album Maraqopa is available to pre-order now.

The Head and The Heart + a great song = perfection <3
