Damien Jurado – “On The Land Blues”

Damien Jurado released Brothers And Sisters Of The Eternal Sun last fall, and aside from providing guest vocals on a couple of Moby remixes, we haven’t heard much from the singer-songwriter since. As it turns out, Jurado has been busy writing a soundtrack for the forthcoming independent film Tumbledown, written and directed by Desi Va… More »

Watch Damien Jurado Lecture A Chatty Concertgoer In Kalamazoo

It’s always annoying when you’re at a show and the people around you seem to be more interested in talking to each other than paying attention to what’s happening on stage. And I can imagine it’s even worse for the performer, who is trying to concentrate and basically do his or her job. As MLiveMore »

Moby – “Almost Home (Washed Out Remix)” (Feat. Damien Jurado)

Earlier this week we heard the Liars remix of Moby and Damien Jurado’s “Almost Home.” Now the bald one has unveiled yet another remix of the track, this time courtesy of Washed Out. This one maintains the original’s floaty tendencies, but as with the Liars version, Ernest Greene has imposed his own signature sounds o… More »

Moby – “Almost Home (LIARS Remix)” (Feat. Damien Jurado)

Moby’s recent album Innocents included a gently drifting electro-folk song called “Almost Home” with vocals by Secretly Canadian mainstay Damien Jurado, who has a new album of his own out this week. Now Moby’s Mute labelmates Liars have gotten their hands on it, so it’s not gentle in the slightest. The experimental trio (who, yes,… More »

Stream Damien Jurado Brothers And Sisters Of The Eternal Son

Damien Jurado’s new album Brothers And Sisters Of The Eternal Son was a powerful enough album to inspire Father John Misty to write a lengthy essay about it and its creator’s brilliance. Now you can finally get an idea of what he was talking about by streaming the new album over at NPR. Give the… More »

Damien Jurado – “Silver Timothy” Video

Veteran Pacific Northwest singer-songwriter Damien Jurado has a new set of weathered, Richard Swift-produced folk-pop on the way by the name of Brothers And Sisters Of The Eternal Son. Today we see the video for the album’s first single, “Silver Timothy,” which, between its lite psych-pop sound and the spacious desert scenes, reminds me of… More »

Damien Jurado’s Brothers And Sisters Of The Eternal Son Gets A Trailer And Essay By Father John Misty

Weathered veteran indie rock singer-songwriter Damien Jurado has quietly amassed an exceptional (and, at 11 LPs and 18 EPs, exceptionally large) discography over the past two decades, and he’s set to add to it this January with the release of Brothers And Sisters Of The Eternal Son, his latest album for Secretly Canadian. Like 2012’… More »

Watch Moby Play Conan

Moby took to Conan last night to perform “The Perfect Life” off his latest album Innocents, which is out today. While Wayne Coyne doesn’t lend a hand like he does in the album version or in the absurd video for the song, the singer is assisted by a decently sized choir. Watch that performance and… More »

Damien Jurado – “Kalla Hus”

It being the holidays and all, singer-songwriter Damien Jurado has teamed up with the Seattle musician Kyle Zantos to offer up a new Christmas song called “Kalla Has.” It’s about being old and alone and about to die on Christmas — so yeah, a real uplifter. Jurado and director Christopher Harrell have also made a… More »

Jeremy Enigk Covers Damien Jurado

Well, this is pretty sweet. Sunny Day Real Estate frontman Jeremy Enigk was the party responsible for bringing singer-songwriter Damien Jurado to Sub Pop way the hell back in the late ’90s. And now Enigk has recorded a smoothly pretty version of Jurado’s quite-nice 2008 song “Last Rights,” a propos of absolutely nothing. Stream Enigk’… More »

Damien Jurado – “Nothing Is The News” Video

In the video for “Nothing Is The News,” the languid psych-rock first single from Damien Jurado’s new album Maraquopa, a couple flees from a gang of baseball bat-wielding miscreants. They would probably do a better job escaping if they weren’t holding hands while running or stopping to make out. Just saying. Watch the video and… More »

22 New Indie Rock Christmas MP3s For 2011

Don’t you love Christmas music? I’m Jewish so mostly it makes me feel like I’m in a mall. But don’t you love malls? I’ve been trying to get my daughter to listen to The Nutcracker, and that’s been pretty easy because she’s only three and doesn’t have a choice. But if Tchaikovsky’s not your speed… More »

Damien Jurado – “Nothing Is The News”

Damien Jurado – “Arkansas” Video

A couple of months ago I suggested considering Damien Jurado’s words on holy experiences and unknown darkness when listening to his ninth album Saint Bartlett. It provides a framework. As an example, the collection’s lead track “Arkansas” raises some questions/answers if you go that route:
Is love a “holy” experience? Sure. Is Arkansas a… More »

Damien Jurado – “Cloudy Shoes”

The first thing I thought of when I heard “Cloudy Shoes” was Band Of Horses’s “Factory.” “Cloudy Shoes” feels more spiritual though. Maybe it’s the echoing hand claps, or maybe the way he repeats each line back to himself. Richard Swift produced Saint Bartlett, giving this song, and especially the previously-posted “Arkansas,” a larger, already-lived-i… More »

Damien Jurado – “Arkansas” (Stereogum Premiere)

Damien Jurado’s simple, effective covers of Microphones’ “Where Lies My Tarp?” and Low’s “Murderer” made for good listening, while also offering interesting personal insights into the Seattle songwriter’s listening habits/aesthetic inspirations. As he told us then:
With a band like Low, I have always compared listening to their music to that of a self… More »
