Style: Indie folk; compare to David Bazan, Denison Witmer, and The Avett Brothers
Top tracks: "Arkansas," "Throwing Your Voice," "Cloudy Shoes"
On "Cloudy Shoes," Damien Jurado admits "I'm still trying to fix my mind, still trying to work it out." Once caught up with the faux-Christian artists of the early Tooth & Nail 90s', Jurado has been distancing himself from that label for over a decade. Produced by former Starflyer 59 player Richard Swift, Saint Bartlett recalls a diverse history of Jurado's styles like it were a musical biography. Some lo-fi tracks could pass for b-sides from 1995, but the album's better moments reveal a new, upbeat direction for the seasoned singer-songwriter.1
