Caught In The Trees (Secretly Canadian/Sonic Unyon)
“I have never been more excited about playing music in my life than I am right now,” writes Damien Jurado on his blog, and it’s no wonder. The Seattle singer/songwriter has penned one of his most infectious and introspective albums yet.
Like his past efforts, Caught In The Trees is a collection of contagious folk-rock tunes, but, according to Jurado, this is the first time he’s turned his lyrics inward, focusing on the breakup of his 13-year marriage. With help from bandmates Eric Fisher and Jenna Conrad, his eighth full-length could be the album to finally propel the little known guitarist to Arcade Fire-like heights.
