Damien Jurado: Everything Trying (Secretly Canadian, 2008)
Jurado is one of those chaps that's been banging away - sometimes like an outhouse door in the wind, yes - for some time. And, in doing so, every now and again he drops a belter. And this is that belter. Taken - wholesale - from his new album, Caught In The Trees, this is more than a little bit lovely. "I'm be sailing on your deep blue eyes," he croons, as cellos and pianos swell like a lover's heart. This is the stuff, Jurado - more of the same please.
