9/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 3rd November 2014

Damien Jurado is known for writing lo-fi, folky songs dealing in betrayal, heartbreak and other such problems. “Caught in the Trees” then, is a bit different. Whilst he has always been a writer of sublime melodies, he usually keeps things very low-key. It opens with the glorious up-tempo “Gillian Was a Horse”. He has, of course, successfully tried his hand at this kind of thing before on the fab “I Break Chairs” album. The songs here are strong. “Trials” and “Coats of Ice” follow on keeping the quality high. “Go First” is as close to Jurado would ever get to Neil Young & Crazy Horse. The final two-thirds of the album contains more of what you’d usually expect to find, the bleak but beautiful, fragile country/folk stuff. Just in case you’d forgotten how listening to Damien Jurado feels, he introduces some heavy melancholia with the short and mournful string instrumental “Sorry is For You” which seems to serve as an intro for “Last Rights”. “Everything’s Trying” is marvelous and “Paper Kite” is “Five Leaves Left” era Nick Drake, in the main. It is pretty difficult to pick a favourite Damien Jurado album as he is both prolific and consistent. “Caught in the Trees” is up there though.
