Gentle, unassuming, and insistent are hallmarks of Seattle singer Damien Jurado. Across eleven albums he’s developed a loyal fanbase with his steady folk songwriting. Recent work with producer Richard Swift however has seen Jarado extend his craft and Brothers And Sisters Of The Eternal Son is perhaps the most adventurous album of his canon to date. Jarado’s own haunted vocals are frequently matched with the whispers of a ghostly chorus, and softly fingerpicked guitars, synths and heavy percussive elements fill certain songs with a density and vibrant energy. The quieter compositions are equally compelling, drawing listeners in to Jarado’s lyrical reflections on nature and our place in it.
