she walked in with sadness in her eyes
i could tell she’d been sleeping with the stars

on 10.10.06, seattle’s damien jurardo released his 7th album *and now that im in your shadow*. with members eric fisher and jenna conrad, new sound elements of a band are brought in but the familiar simplicity forever loved is never lost.

i still remember the first time i heard damien. a few years ago it happened over the cosmic connection of music listening and dreaming with a new friend, closing our eyes gently on his sofa in the outer borough of queens in complete sweet silence. magic. that feeling when you challenge the chills that run up and down yr spine and all you can do is feel the warmth because you understand it somehow. maybe its in damien’s voice, all that underlining dark story-telling or the way an acoustic guitar can sound so kindly intimate but i felt him. until this day, his music still brings me back to that first time, this innocent feeling rushes through me and i cant help but smile.

listen ~*~ what were the chances

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    What Were The Chances is the most gorgeous song! I’ve been meaning to pick up Jurado’s album; thanks for the heads up.
