I have been caught in a major Damin Jurado rut lately. 'Rut' isn't the right word. 'Rut' alludes to bad. My current Jurado obsession isn't bad, it's just omnipresent. I guess it could be bad though, if it persisted for a few more months. For while Damien's beautiful songs totally agree with the ear, I am not so sure that an extended exposure to his words are really that good for the soul. They are just so melancholy. Gorgeous, no doubt, but oh so melancholy.
Here is a great example. Just a beautiful song, but the story it tells is just heartbreaking. Great stuff...in moderation.
