St. Damien

Aug 7th, 2010 in Music

Damien Jurado was yet another musician to release a new record in May when Jurado delivered the phenomenal “St. Barlett” on the “Secretly Canadian” label.  With hot producer, Richard Swift (Mynabirds, Gardens and Villa, etc.), at the helm on Swift’s ranch in Oregon, Jurado delivers a record that wanders beautifully between the sounds of the Flaming Lips and Neil Young (circa “On the Beach” or “Tonight’s the Night”).  St. Bartlett is a return to form for Jurado and amongst his best.

Check out the first song from St. Bartlett, Cloudy Shoes (sounding very much like the Flaming Lips’ and their singer, Wayne Coyne), and another gem from that same record, Rachel & Cali (the latter espousing honesty in life and acceptance of weakness) .

Gracias, Miguel.
