Staff Picks: Damien Jurado - In The Shape Of A Storm

For fans of: Spare intimate indie-folk and thoughtful songwriting.

What they're saying: Under the Radar mag notes this album’s essentialist nature saying Damien “resigns to just the bare elements that anchor his restless career: his voice, his words, and his guitar”. A review from the Irish Times praises In The Shape Of A Storm’s spare, brutal beauty.

What we say: Intimate and warm, this album recorded all in one afternoon session is one of Jurado’s best. After the death of close friend and collaborator Richard Swift, this feels like a cathartic output from Jurado, featuring stripped down recordings and solid songwriting. - MS
