Amoeba Review

01/20/2014

Damien Jurado’s a tough artist to pin down. Though you could place him under the loose-fitting singer-songwriter tag, his latest album, Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son, is a grandiose, orchestral affair. “Magic Number’s” dark, deserty feel sets the tone for the album, sounding a bit like a lost 007 theme song, with strings and choruses sending shivers. “Silver Timothy” starts looser and sparer, reminiscent of classic Cat Stevens, until it erupts into its epic final third. Together with producer Richard Swift, who also produced 2012’s terrific Maraqopa and helps bring that widescreen magic here, Jurado creates a dusky, all-encompassing world, best exemplified on “Return to Maraqopa,” a kind of desert ballad that surges on a gurgling synthesizer and Jurado’s self-harmonized vocals. His voice breaks beautifully on the My Morning Jacket-ish “Metallic Cloud,” while songs like “Jericho Road” only emphasize the Spaghetti Western feel of the whole thing, with great Morricone-style touches and an electric vocal by Jurado. It’s one of Jurado’s best works yet. Wherever the mythical place is that Jurado’s music calls to mind, it’s not somewhere you’ll want to leave.
