In order to create a live reproduction of the grandiose recordings of his upcoming record, Saint Bartlett, Mr. Jurado enlisted eight musicians from Seattle band Kay Kay and his Weathered Underground to join him on tour as The Saint Bartlett Band. The resulting concerts will be unlike anything Damien Jurado fans have seen before – the songs done justice with an orchestra adding violin, cello, tube, french horn and keys.

Saint Bartlett is coming! All pre-orders of Damien Jurado‘s upcoming record (in stores on 5/25) will receive an instant MP3 download of the whole shebang.
Damien’s Saint Bartlett recording partner and Secretly Canadian Soul-Brother Richard Swift has provided us with a video trailer to get us amped and to also bring us into their gentle and terrifying world.
See? I’m both amped, terrified, and ready to order some fucking vinyl!
When RICHARD SWIFT was not spending his 2009 SXSW stint absolutely blowing socks of crowds with his live version of “Lady Luck,” he also found some time to record a session with the venerable Daytrotter. Here, we find Richard beautifully knocking out four jams from his latest longplayer, Atlantic Ocean, and Mr. Daytrotter, Sean Moeller, finally nailing what we’ve always wanted to say about Richard: “Everyone I know who knows about Richard Swift – either knows him personally or solely through his music – find themselves getting exasperated quickly in their blushing and energetic approval of the man’s songwriting, of his sensibilities, of his knack, of his timelessness and of his genius. They all use that word – that G-word, we all do, when we get going about Dicky Swift…He writes songs that are forceful, innocent, damaged and resplendent without being tricked out and ‘worked on.’”
