Damien Jurado – Saint Bartlett

There is always a degree of melancholy on any Damien Jurado album, and on Saint Bartlett it’s turned up to about 8.5 (assuming the scale starts at 6). I continue to be amazed at the beauty and brilliance of his particular brand of songwriting. This release is a strong one with nearly every track pulling its weight, and should help to widen his small but adoring audience, of which I am a part.
