PLAYBILL PLAYLIST: Tony Winner Steve Kazee Picks His Favorite Indie-Rock and Alt-Country Songs
09 Apr 2014
"Silver Katherine" (Damien Jurado). My spirit animal, Damien Jurado, and his newest release, "Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son," is such an impressive work that I find it hard to single out one song off of it to share, but "Silver Katherine" has the most plays and so it shall be. Heartbreaking and hopeful and haunting are just some of the words that come to mind.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
