Editorial Reviews

Best known for his dark yet fragile first person fictional tales, Jurado now unlocks the door and invites us into his own enigmatic world with an energy and intensity that is all consuming. Close friends and band mates Eric Fisher and Jenna Conrad collaborated on the compositions - some more rocking than Jurado fans are used to, but as intense as ever.

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

This album is utterly amazing.
Kirsten
Polished electric/acoustic guitars, heaving waves of cello strings, upbeat percussive rhythm and glittering piano verses frame the vocals.
Christopher Petro
Definitely worth picking up and having a listen.

His cds are brilliant. see him live - it's inspiring and heart breaking all at once. one of my favourite artists to date - his lyrics and the honesty of his voice combine to create beautiful songs that make you think. Definitely worth picking up and having a listen.

Format: Audio CD
Damien Jurado is an immensely talented musician and songwriter. He is capable of deeply introspective lyrics that slowly unfold and grant the listener a peek into his heart. His talents on the guitar are manifold. He also knows his way around a good cover--his version of Pink Moon (available on his website) is wonderful. I was very excited for Caught in the Trees, and overall, I think it delivered what I expected--solid, well written folkie inflected pop tunes delivered in an easy baritone. So why only three stars instead of 4? Well, mostly because I can't give a 3.5 star review, which is what I would like to do. This is better than average music of this genre, but there is nothing new or revelatory here. The production is a little murky (perhaps by design), although the musicianship is high. Jurado's vocals seem a little more strained than in previous releases, but never unpleasantly so. Backing strings are a nice touch, but do not manage to elevate the music to another plane. The female vocalist is also a lovely counterpoint, and appreciated when she is there.

Ultimately, this is a good disc, but I was hoping for a big step forward. I suppose that not every disc can be a breakthrough album, and I don't want anyone to think that this is a negative review--I am definitely endorsing the disc, but I want to encourage DJ to continue pushing the songcraft, to dig a little deeper.

So who will like this? Fans of Matt Pond PA, fans of Dennison Whitmer will both probably be familiar with him, and will find much to enjoy. Fans of Nick Drake who have been told about the comparison will likely be initially disappointed (being compared to Nick Drake is a hard label to live up to!) but on repeat listen will likely enjoy this more and more.

After several laid back alt-country/indie releases from Damien Jurado, fans of Jurado's high-watermark album "I Break Chairs" will find much to love with his latest album "Caught in the Trees". While his new album doesn't rock quite as much as I Break Chairs did, it still shares much of the same spirit that was on display on that album. Damien's voice is as pleasant as usual, steel pedal guitar, backing cello's, and even some beautiful backing female vocals courtesy of Jenna Conrad make for an album full of warmth that sounds just perfect as we creep into the Fall season.

There are highlights all over the album, but if you want a quick taste I would listen to "Gillian was a horse", "Trials", or "Predictive Living". If you're new to Damien Jurado, I think fans of Magnolia Electric Company, Hayden, Johnny Cash, and even Elliott Smith could find a new artist to add to your arsenal. Take a chance, I think you'll enjoy what you hear.

Thanks, and happy listening. And by the way, if you don't own "I Break Chairs" add it to your cart immediately.

Damien Jurado - Caught In The Trees
Engineered by Kory Krukenberg and Casey Foubert at VU
Mixed at VU by Kory Krukenberg
Mastered at Spectre Mastering by Troy Glessner
Produced by Kory Krukenberg, Casey Foubert, Band

Easily the most understated songwriter of our time, Seattle's Damien Jurado is one of the most affecting, deeply introspective poets, and bountiful songwriters.

Known for a desolate narrative style, Jurado typically takes listeners through rigid tough times and disconnection: most albums brimming with sad songs on sad events, dotted with the occasional elevating glimmer.

He also bares unwieldy surprises, album to album. Coming off the stark abandoning lo-fi burner And Now That I'm in Your Shadow, his seventh full-length soars Jurado into another direction. Resting his acoustic guitar a bit, Caught in The Trees ignites with electrified sound and new accompaniment.

Jurado's recognizable, sweet and lightly Southern cadence is paired with female vocals (Jenna Conrad). Polished electric/acoustic guitars, heaving waves of cello strings, upbeat percussive rhythm and glittering piano verses frame the vocals.

As comparisons to Will Oldham suggest, this album sparks of rock influence that even the aggressive and flaring I Break Chairs album doesn't reach. "I'm no bullshit talker," opens up the album on "Gillian Was a Horse." Melody has always been Jurado's most noticeable crutch. Next to his poetic panache, melody gives him the edge to let the saddest fable you've ever heard be listenable and life altering. Here melody is digested with mostly up-tempo instrumentation and vocals. Though songs like "Last Right" and "Everything Trying" show Jurado keeps the past nearby.

just that and nothing deep. i admit music is mostly subjective but with that being said, we all find a common denominator and share the feeling of hate, anger, love, disgust, disappointment, longing, dread, pity, fear, sorrow and all the adjectives in between that is life.

the melancholy lyrics are juxtaposed with dark yet somewhat melodic chords and notes that are finger picked in a sort of alternative country folkish indie style.

this is my first album by him, the track "caskets" was what caught my attention upon hearing it one late night on tv.

i was getting sober off heroin at the time and that was just 4 months ago.

it really hit close to home to say the least.

even if you don't listen to this type of genre in music, it's a good listen when you're in the mood for exploring different musical styles or just giving an artist you've never heard of a chance to captivate your mind, body and soul. if you are already open minded about music though, i assure you, you will not be disappointed with this one, well, unless your heart has been torn open so many times it is no longer there... and even then, that's the perfect reason to listen to this album. ;]

peace,
ruan
