Caught in the Trees

Damien Jurado
Caught in the Trees
(Secretly Canadian)
Over the course of seven albums and 20 years, Damien Jurado has released some of the saddest music going. Even though all the characters and stories he conjured up on albums like Rehearsals for Departure or Ghost of David are fictional, his stark musical palette and rich emotional tone evoke something much more palpable. It's interesting that his first batch of truly autobiographical songs---Caught in the Trees documents the dissolution of his 13-year marriage---is a much more up-tempo record. It's like he needs to hide behind melodic playfulness. But underneath, the writing is still beautifully heartbreaking and hauntingly real.
