Damien Jurado "Gillian was a Horse"

Damien Jurado - Gillian was a Horse [download or die!]
"You must admit the turnips
have all been less than grand:
There’s no more police escorts
or the high school welcome band"
Damien Jurado says he’s no lie detector and the greatest of liars, and I guess I can see how the two could be incompatible. I say he was the sweetest of modern folk singers, but these days he’s picked up a drummer and a bitter sense of humor. We agree to disagree on whether this was inevitable. I’ll always be asking him "How far is Ohio?" not to mention the subway and the nearest water fountain. And I'll always wish for dawn, in the person of Damien Jurado, to introduce himself to me.

By September 9th he’ll be Caught in the Trees with the release of his album of the same name. The track list will go:

1. Gillian Was A Horse
2. Trials
3. Caskets
4. Coats of Ice
5. Go First
6. Sorry Is For You
7. Last Rights
8. Dimes
9. Everything Trying
10. Sheets
11. Paper Kite
12. Best Dress
13. Predictive Living
