In February, local folk crooner Stone Jack Jones released his Ancestor (purchase it via Western Vinyl), a dark, slow-burning, Roger Moutenot-produced collection that, according to Scene contributor Edd Hurt, "subverts conventions of rhythm-section playing and song form even as it suggests a fusion of Brian Eno's Before and After Science and Lee Hazlewood." Today, Jones reveals the cryptic, sepia-tone, Zack Spiger-directed video for Ancestor's "Jackson," and you can watch that above. It features some pastoral scenes, along with acting from Madison Rowley, Alchemy Henrickson and Jones himself, not to mention a somewhat foreboding giant rabbit — the rabbit falls somewhere between the Donnie Darko bunny and Gummo's Bunny Boy. Give it a look.
Jones and his band recently wrapped their From Nashville With Love and Torture Tour with Lylas and Coupler, but will play a couple of Nashville dates in the coming weeks: June 25 at The East Room with Luray and Honey Locust, and July 16 at The Stone Fox with Marissa Nadler.
