Damien Jurado

Damien Jurado
's folk-influenced indie rock is something of a recent(ish) discovery for me (thank you, Casey), and one I'm very pleased to have made. The Seattle, Washington singer/songwriter, who used to be in the hardcore band Coolidge, has released seven full-length albums (as well as several EPs) over the past decade on various labels including Sub Pop and more recently Secretly Canadian - album number eight is due out this autumn.

This song comes from 2003's Where Shall You Take Me?, which is available along with several of Damien Jurado's other releases, from the Secretly Canadian online shop. There's also an online shop on Damien Jurado's own site; at the time of writing the mail order facility is unavailable, but check out the site anyway for the usual news, info & tour dates, as well as a few downloadable tracks you'll find there. His MySpace page is worth a look, too.
