I first saw Damien Jurado when he opened for Pedro the Lion at a vaguely Christian-themed venue located in a suburban strip mall in Southern California. Compared to the gloom and religious guilt that lingered around David Bazan, Jurado was endearingly sweet, masking his early-day shyness by joking between songs and performing the goofy "Trampoline," his first seven-inch release on Sub Pop (back then the label had lost some of its luster and was stuck in a post-grunge, pre-Shins middle ground). It's been over a dozen years since that show, yet Jurado continues to make some of the best music of his career. Saint Bartlett is his finest effort since 2000's Ghost of David, a texturally precise and gorgeously assembled recording bolstered in the studio by members of openers Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground. But remember, no matter how politely you request he play "Trampoline," it's not going to happen. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
