damien jurado - denton, tx
often considered the backwoods version of nick drake, i really don't understand why damien jurado isn't huge by now. on october 10th, secretly canadian will be releasing his 7th album "and now that i'm in your shadow" and it's destined to be another underrated folk/country masterpiece. also soon to be released is made in mexico's reissue of his 1998 ep "gathered in song". the reissue will feature the original 5 tracks along with 5 demos taken from his "rehearsals for departure" (sub pop, 1999) sessions. here's my favorite track off the new album.
