VIDEO PREMIERE: Damon & Naomi cover "Love" by the Jacks

This week in the fishwrap, departing Phoenix staffer Caitlin Curran interviews couples who are also bandmates and finds out how on earth they manage to have sex with each other while also making music together. The online version is expanded, with additional profiles of two of our favorite (and coincidentally, local) band/couples: Helms, and Damon and Naomi. The latter qualify as some kind of indie-folk romantic ideal, managing to balance not just love and rock but the music life and the literary life.

In conjunction with the article, we're proud to debut an exclusive -- and oh-so-appropriate -- video from D&N's new DVD, Damon & Naomi Live at Shubuya O-Nest, Tokyo Japan 2008, which came out last week (you can buy it directly from the band here). This one's a cover of a song called "Love," originally by 1960s Japanese psych-rockers the Jacks -- performed, obviously, in Japan, with the D&N Superband lineup including Bhob Rainey, Espers' Helena Espvall, and Ghost's Masaki Batoh and Michio Kurihara.
