Seattle, Washington’s Damien Jurado has made a name for himself playing stripped down sad songs, from “Abilene” to “Now That I’m Your Shadow.” He’s going to release his sixth studio album Saint Bartlett on Secretly Canadian. His new tunes, including the following “Arkansas” see a 50’s sort of waltz, sounding like a southern bar set for closing. According to the press release, there’s a newfound sense of grandiosity in the record, which makes sense following 2008’s Caught in the Trees.
Damien and his brother, Drake, released another record last month of Secretly Canadian’s special off-shoot St. Ives, which specializes in limited edition records with handmade covers. You can get their record (LP or MP3) Hoquiam from SC’s mailorder.
