To say Damien Jurado
spent the better part of his music career writing in relative obscurity would be an understatement. Since 1997, he's periodically churned out a number of high-quality albums, albeit albums that barely registered a blip on the musicsphere's radar. "Understatement" is perhaps the best word to describe Jurado's career and sound, and is a quiet corner that he seems to have curled into intentionally. The shadows give Jurado a freedom to do as he pleases.
