The 2000 album from Damien Jurado is back back back in the form of vinyl and cassette reissues on Sub Pop. Ghost Of David is Jurado’s third full-length, and it finds the man shedding a lot of the indie folky textures of the previous album in favour of some spiky indie guitars. Just as effective at conveying weighty melancholy.

This really isn't as good as Rehearsals for Departure or Waters Ave S. The production is very bare bones compared to his last record, and the home recording just doesn't sound very good. While I'm not opposed to home recording this album has a scrapped together, unfinished feel to it that I don't like. I don't feel much loss or pain- or much of anything- listening to this. It certainly isn't a god awful record, but if you already have the two aforementioned albums I'd save your money and skip Ghost of David.
