WATCH: Damien Jurado Live at WBEZ, On Tour Now


Damien Jurado returned to Chicago’s WBEZ a few days ago for an in-studio performance before playing a SOLD OUT show at Schuba’s later that night! You might have heard Damien on the show back in 2010, playing in support of Saint Bartlett. He chats it up with host Andrew Gill and plays a few songs as well. You can download the entire show HERE and watch him play “Working Titles” and “Museum of Flight,” both off of 2012′s Maraqopa, above.

Damien is currently on tour. He’ll play Somerville tonight and ANOTHER SOLD OUT show at the Mercury Lounge on Saturday! When previewing the show, The New York Times writes, “A snarling hard-core punk turned diligently bleeding heart, Mr. Jurado is a folk singer-songwriter with rare delicacy and resilience. His 10th studio album, Maraqopa (Secretly Canadian), is his most intriguing yet: acidly psychedelic and uneasily introspective, it even dips a toe into lush Wall of Sound pop (“Reel to Reel”).” Check all tour dates HERE.

On The Radio, On The Radio

 

Today marks the kickoff of the 31st CMJ Music Marathon, so it seems only appropriate that we should share with you two performances from Secretly Canadian artists that’ll be airing later today.

First, tune in to hear Exitmusic live on KEXP at noon eastern, 9:00am pacific. They’ll be kicking around New York City for the rest of this week, with shows tonight, tomorrow, and Thursday.

Then later, tune in to Music with Matt Reilly on KUT to hear a performance from The War on Drugs, who’ll be playng at Emo’s in Austin tonight, as well!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gardens & Villa Flutes Rock, and We Have Proof

As you may know, Gardens & Villa have a few new remixes floating around, and we celebrated with a limited edition run of laser-engraved Gardens & Villa flutes.

We sent some to stores, and sent a few more to radio stations that have been jamming out the band’s self-titled debut. It was our way of saying thanks, and the response was stupendous, with radio folks letting us know how much they enjoyed getting something a little different in the massive fall mail piles.

But nothing, nothing, nothing could’ve prepared us for this:

 

The inimitable Thor Slaughter (from KWVA, at the University of Oregon in Eugene) posted up a youtube video of himself and his flute, jamming as only he can. He was inspired by the indelible fluted funk of Gardens & Villa themselves.

Thank you Gardens & Villa, and thank you Thor. We give you five flutes, too. Out of five.

Read on for the full run of Gardens & Villa fall tour dates. And if you’re really lucky, your local record store still might have some flutes to give out with the album.

I know your momma told you not to, but go ahead, stare away at these Suuns.
