Biography

Welcome to Maraqopa, population 2. Damien Jurado's newest collaboration with producer Richard Swift drops us into a brutal and benevolent landscape. The bold strokes and new turns the pair made with 2010's Saint Bartlett are taken even further. He throws open the gate on his oft insular dirges and allows them do some real wilding out in the canyon. In Maraqopa, the vistas are ... Read more in Amazon's Damien Jurado Store

Editorial Reviews

Damien Jurado is every character in every Damien Jurado song. He is the gun, the purple anteater, the paper wings, the avalanche, the air show disaster, Ohio, the ghost of his best friend's wife. It is a universe unto its own, with it's own symbolism, creation myth, and liturgy. You might go as far as to call it a religion, and your religion is a character in his religion.

Its different, fresh, and interesting.

It's like the best of My Morning Jacket meets the best of Beck meets the best of Fleet Foxes.

There are very nice layers of rhythm and melody.

I have been a Damien Jurado fan for a long time, and appreciate his ability to produce fresh and consistently brilliant songs. With that said, Brothers And Sisters Of The Eternal Sun took my appreciation for his music up another notch. This album is simply brilliant. It is hypnotic and warm, like an old friend you want to continue to talk with. The entire album from start to finish flows like a seamless masterpiece. This might sound like fan boy hype, but that is far from the truth. I have worked my way over the years from bands such as the Replacements, Minutemen, Nirvana, Lemondheads, Pavement, Sun Kil Moon and hundreds of other amazing songwriters. No other album moves me like this one. After listening to it probably 50 times this week while working, I can easily say it's one of my top 5 favorite albums of all time, if not my all-time favorite album. In any case, it is a must have. I tip my hat to Damien Jurado. This is truly something special.

How does this guy keep getting better with each album? I have been following him for some time now and every time I think, "Okay, this has got to be his best." but, here we are. I won't bother going into song by song detail but, I will say that my favorite track is all of them. It's only the 31st of January. It wouldn't surprise me if this isn't the best album I download all year.

I have enjoyed all of Damien Jurado's albums but find his collaborations with producer/musician Richard Swift to be my favorites. Saint Bartlett, Maraqopa, and now Brothers and Sisters all rotate in and out of my top 3 Jurado albums. The rich instrumentation and production on this album enhance his fantastic songwriting. Man, this album is just full of jams. And for those hungry for the subdued, beautifully sparse songs of earlier will be satisfied by songs like Silver Joy and Silver Katherine. This album is worth every peso you'll drop on it. HUZZAH

Damien Jurado
Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son
Seattle, WA
(Secretly Canadian Records)

Engineered and Mixed at National Freedom Studios, Oregon by Richard Swift // Produced by Richard Swift

Seattle native Damien Jurado is fearless of change. Once the slow core figurehead, solemn albums like the Ghosts of David now seem like abandoned chapters. Caught in the Trees arrived and introduced Jurado as a rambling man, joyous with golden rhythms, warm harmony and Americana folk-rock at its heart. Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son brings more texture and colors to the palette, while bridging across Jurado’s marbled 11 album history.

Vintage instrumentation nods to the past, delivering tiny vignettes as a vivid milieu of gypsy dancer rhythms, dusty acoustic melodies and mysterious bass plodding. Jurado showcases a soulful robustness throughout and shores his approach with melodic listenability, nesting entirely well with any state of mind.

A psychedelic veins pulses with indescribable variance, one moment a battalion of strings swell and arch (“Magic Number”) then fade, exposing simple guitar fretwork and solemn harmony (“Silver Katherine”). Then he harks yesteryear while hugging the gradient between folk and world genres. The long burner “Silver Donna” drives with brushy acoustic strums, sun-baked vocals and unrestrained tribal-like percussion.

Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son is a sparkling pinnacle for a career filled with timelessness, an easy candidate for album of the year.

I like this album because it has a quality that is a little bit rare, and that is versatility. That may seem like a weird description, but here is what I mean:

1. It can be listened to casually. It sounds good in the car, or in the background around the house. The songs are comfortable and a little catchy.
2. It can be played as ambient music. I have enjoyed having it on (at a barely audible volume) when I am working.
3. It is good for close listening. This album definitely complex enough to be listened to repeatedly. There are very nice layers of rhythm and melody. He has combined interesting genres of music and his vocals are ethereal.

In this latest effort from Damien Jurado, I hear elements of Neil Young, 1960's California psychedelia, and modern stuff like Jose Gonzalez's band Junip.

I can't really think of what else could be added to an album. It has clever combinations of musical styles, great musicianship, along with thoughtful and engaging lyrics. Great stuff!

I caught the end of "Silver Timothy" on NPR and was immediately captivated by the haunting beauty of the tune. After purchasing and listening to the entire album, over and over, I am hooked.

Damien Jurado has a solid understanding of rhythm, how to layer harmonies, and write really solid lyrics. It's like the best of My Morning Jacket meets the best of Beck meets the best of Fleet Foxes. Super solid, and really happy I found his music.

On top of this being great music, it's somewhat different from Maraqopa. Which is crazy. His music displays great variety and yet it is super-cohesive and awesome. OK, I'll stop, but really, this is good good good.
