So it’s March… let the touring and record release seasons begin!
First up we’d like to pull your attention over to Washington’s own Damien Jurado, who is hitting the road starting this Friday at The Doug Fir in Portland with Viva Voce on March 4. At the Crocodile in Seattle on the 5th, Tower Theater in Bend on the 7th, Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco on the 9th, and on down the road making stops all over the world through late May.
One of our favorite records from 2010 was the Jurado penned Saint Bartlett. Recorded with and produced by Richard Swift, at Swift’s quaint Cottage Grove, Ore. studio – National Freedom. Lucky for us, the two of them have just finished recording this past month what is now being called LP10. One would expect this could see a 2011 release date. We’ll see on that now won’t we?
Wow, you’ve hung in there this far… how about a little extra credit from the Jurado/Swift combo, have you heard Other People’s Songs? Listen to it in it’s entirety for free at their tumblr. Man oh man, expect amazing things this August from these two.
