Damien Jurado

The Horizon Just Laughed

Secretly Canadian

lp + download

Released: 4th May 2018


jurado strips things back once more on this record; the familiarly acoustic setting adds greater focus to his rich, soulful vocals that beg us to fall in to them without hesitation.

his first self-produced album in a 20+ year career, this feels more personal than even his Maraqopa trilogy. it feels like a beautiful collage — a narrative pieced together through letters & postcards & providing snapshots of one’s journey to find a sense of place & connection to a changing world. fans of fleet foxes, father john misty & Michael kiwanuka will feel right at home here. “Whereas 2016's 17-track opus Visions Of Us On The Land was a defiantly (& brilliantly) sprawling mess of a record, The Horizon Just Laughed is a tight 40-minute offering that sticks to a coherent & unified sound best described as subtle” 8/10 – line of best fit.
