My love for Damien Jurado is no secret.
I was first introduced to his music in the late 90s and my appreciation has only grown.
I can say with some certainty that he is my favorite musician. I know, it’s that serious.
His new album is out. It’s a bit of a departure from his previous stuff, but the more I listen to it, the more I like it. I’m especially enjoying the track “museum of flight.” This enjoyment is three fold:
1. superficially, I love museums. even just the word. museum.
2. I spent a very boring day in the late 80s at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. I was a kid. I was on family vacation (side note: my mom could plan a pretty solid, non-disney, vacation. I appreciate that very much now). I didn’t yet appreciate the art of museums. not fully.
3. Mr. Jurado hits some nice falsettos in this track. Sounds nice, real nice.
