I Had No Intentions

There's something about a sad song late at night that brings a certain sense of comfort to my soul. Damien Jurado's "And Now That I'm In Your Shadow" is playing and it just puts me at a sense of ease. I love metal and punk and hip-hop, music you can dance to or drive really fast to. Stuff to be enjoyed. But there's something about a haunting, dark, beautiful song that puts me at ease. Whether it's an ambient piece or a singer/songwriter who crafts minor chords under lyrics about dead and lost loves. The title track, And now that I'm in your shadow, is one of my favorites. Damien Jurado has a knack for writing great songs. Gary Murray on LN is another songwriter who writes that most hauntingly beautiful songs.
