Damien Jurado :: Brothers And Sisters Of The Eternal Son

For most of his career, Damien Jurado’s records have been low key, sturdy things. There were stylistic outliers, sure — the crashing indie rock of 2002’s I Break Chairs and the minimal electronics of songs like “Big Decision” from 2005’s On My Way to Absence -- but for a good, long stretch, Jurado albums were demure, subdued things. They were good, often great, but in 2010 Jurado teamed with songwriter/producer/mage Richard Swift for Saint Bartlett. Something changed. Suddenly there were flashes of dreamy pop, of mystic rock & roll. Things got even freakier with 2012’s Maraqopa . . .
