Damien Jurado – Arkansas

Arkansas is a dark tale from indie folkster Damien Jurado’s 2010 long-player, Saint Bartlett.  Damien’s propensity for dark tales is enhanced by his plaintive but tuneful voice.  His songs tend to push forward relentlessly, driving home his visions with exaggerated urgency.  In short, Damien Jurado’s music demands a listeners’ attention. In February of this year, he released a brand new collection, Maraqopa.

Damien has a website, but it’s a bit sketchy in content. The best source for information and music samples is his link on his label’s page, Secretly Canadian. Check out Damien Jurado and get your fix on dark tales told expertly!
