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

Product Description

2014 release, the 11th album from the Indie singer/songwriter. 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 its 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.

Damien Jurado's new album has the intriguing title "Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Sun" and six songs that start with the word "Silver". You could be forgiven for thinking that Jurado renown for his solo singer song writing skills has been spending too much time listening to the Flaming Lips. There is however in this album enough to satisfy those who long to hear his brilliant acoustic simplicity and also those who have come to realish the sort of diversity that has been evident on his more recent albums produced by Richard Swift not least 2012's "Maraqopa". Jurado tell us that there is a sub plot to BASOTES "about a guy who disappears on a search, if you will, for himself and never goes home." OK fair enough but let us judge this album on the quality of the songs and not the concept.

Opener "The Magic Number' is jazzy and high on ghostly atmospherics. It grows on repeated listens and is a powerful start. It is the almost Latino rhythmic single "Silver Timothy' which really sets the ball rolling as great Jurado song is unveiled with sparkling guitar solo leading it to a suitable conclusion. Sadly "Return to Maraqopa" is a bit of plod on first listens although perseverance may pay dividends. Much better is the piano lament "Metallic Cloud" the first of a range of haunting slow songs where the albums highlights are contained. Indeed the last two songs "Silver Katherine" and "Silver Joy" return to the Damien Jurado of "Caught in trees" and are both sublime ballads. The simplicity of the latter echoes the laidback ambience of a song like "Ohio", and its pleading refrain of "Do not disturb, me let me be" is haunting. The watery lines of "Silver Malcolm" sound initially like somthing out of the Nick Drake songbook but mutates with bold sweeping synths punctuating it throughout.

"Brothers and sisters..." continues the recent vein of more soulful, atmospheric, 70ish sound that Richard Swift (producer and friend) has imbued. I have sympathies with one of the reviewers, who longs for the simplicity and rawness of Jurado's earlier albums - I too am a massive fan of his early songs.

I read an interview with Swift and Jurado, the former claiming that his earlier output did not reflect Jurado's true self...well, all I can rebuke is that he did an incredible job of conning me, who melted under the spell of his simple, gorgeous melodic tales of sorrow and heartbreak.

But back to the music and current album. As with most of Jurado's songs, it takes a few spins to fully appreciate their beauty, and although "Brothers and Sisters..." wouldn't make my top three DJ albums, it is still a worthy addition, with some magical moments. "Silver Timothy" and "Metallic Cloud" are stand-outs - making the most of Swift's clever production. "Silver Katherine" and "Silver Joy" harken back to earlier times - just Jurado and acoustic guitar. Indeed, there are no weak songs on the album. Jurado picks and strums; Santana-like bongo percussions, soaring strings, falsetto choruses and Swift adds spacey organ, vibes, piano and atmospheric clicks, bleeps and quirky sounds to fill the sound... a real alternative 70s pastiche, that mostly works. I (personally) would like a stronger vocal mix from Jurado in places.

Recent albums might polarise some fans - not quite a Dylan goes electric moment, but a gradual broadening of sound and experiment. Jurado will retain his cult appeal! However, it is still very much a Damien Jurado album and a 'very agreeable listen' with that. Swift and Jurado have created some elevating music, and doubtless will continue to do so.

Note: The Deluxe edition is well worth the extra expense. Eight fine live songs, mostly from this album, recorded in a reverby chapel with choir - raw, sparse, terrific!

An interesting voice matched to interesting songs. Possibly not for everyone, but I think it presents a good musical adventure.

Enough said. Fantastic album, big improvement on Maraqopa even though it did have some great tracks on it. Best artist around.

Love the album, very cool retro sound, delighted to find it had a download code so I also have the MP3 files. Not so happy with the material used for the album sleeve a bit to cardy and not very durable but still looks great!

Where Shall You Take Me?On My Way To AbsenceRehearsals For DepartureGHOST OF DAVIDWaters Ave. S.Gathered in SongCaught in the Trees [VINYL]

Since Saint Bartlett I have become more frustrated with Damien Jurado's albums, and Brothers and Sisters for ME is a step too far into 'space rock' etc.. It is a disjointed album - the best songs being Silver Katherine, Silver Joy & Silver Timothy which in my eyes are more Damien Jurado. At the end of the day it is his music and he does want he wants, Damien probably will increase his fan base which I can only wish him well. Before the comments start saying 'Damien cannot keep doing Ghost of David' all I can say is that is the beauty of Damien Jurado's songs that is exactly what he does not do. He can play raw acoustic songs and each album he brings something different to each album. I am talking about all albums before Saint Bartlett. Maybe he wants to explore, expand his sound and who am I to stand in his way. For me it does not work, Richard Swift I don't believe has made Damien's music any better, richer - it just sound more now like Fleet Foxes etc and he has taken the mystery away from Damien Jurado's music. Time for us both to move on, thanks for the memories Damien.
