Damien Jurado: Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son

damienjurado

Indie folk veteran Jurado spreads his wings a little on this, his 12th solo album, but it’s still so rooted in the 1970s that you can positively smell the patchouli oil.
The influence of Neil Young and Nick Drake comes through loud and clear on the wistful Metallic Cloud and Silver Joy, while he goes all funky on us with the bongo-laden Silver Donna. There’s also some wonderfully psychedelic grooving on the vaguely Dear Prudence-like opener Magic Number.
It’s a warm, enjoyable record and definitely a grower.
