Damien Jurado:  Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son

by Richard Gehr on January 16, 2014

“I saw stars fall like teeth/ Cutting my name into the earth,” sings Pacific Northwest songwriter Damien Jurado in “Silver Katherine,” one of several “Silver” songs on Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son. Like his two earlier albums, Brothers and Sisters was produced by the brilliant Richard Swift and brewed in the same alchemical alembic as Gene Clark’s 1974 cosmic-cowboy masterpiece No Other (featuring “Silver Raven”). Inspired by late ‘60s/early ‘70s psychedelic-Jesus albums released on private micro-labels, Jurado’s music is hermetic, mysterious and subversively inspiring.
