Posted by Charlie Swanson on Wed, Feb 15, 2012 at 9:06 AM

Like many others, the Portland duo John Heart Jackie, aka Peter Murray and Jennie Wayne, are big fans of singer/songwriter Damien Jurado. With Jurado's new album, Maraqopa, set to release a week from now, Murray and Wayne took a chance and adapted one of the upcoming album's tracks, "Working Titles." Moved by the song, John Heart Jackie here rework the tune in their subdued, harmonious style, creating a peaceful atmosphere that builds to a momentous climax. Recorded at Antler & Co. this one-shot video captures the simple beauty of the song and the pair's passion for it. John Heart Jackie are currently touring around the West Coast, landing back in Portland March 14 at Mississippi Studios.
