...Damien Jurado: Saint Bartlett...

This album came out back in May of 2010 and somehow, I missed it. I guess it's a case of better late than never. This album has so many great songs on it, many of which stay in the vein of Jurado and Richard Swift's collaborative collection of cover songs that they put up for free last year, entitled "Other People's Songs Volume 1". In fact, Swift is on board with this album as well, adding backing vocals and instrumentation. This is Damien at his "sunniest", if you could call it that. Check out the live version of "Cloudy Shoes" below. This record would have definitely been my favorite of last year if I hadn't slept on it. I hope that this is a foreshadow of things to come. Enjoy.
