I Break Chairs is the record fans have been begging for, a pleasing culmination of all things Jurado. The honest and familiar soul of Damien’s past efforts remains the focal point, and with David Bazan (Pedro the Lion) engineering, these twelve new songs are full and alive, with jangling guitars and rolling drums carrying Damien’s priceless sense of narrative and powerful vocal delivery. Thematically, Damien visits ground fans will be familiar with: friends disappointed, abandoned whores and mermaids, boys ditching their girls, and with “Like Titanic,” he weaves a modern-day love story Hollywood could never get quite right, in which two broke youngsters escape boredom by trespassing, wrecking cars, setting fires, popping pills and telling lies. Tracks like “The Way You Look” and “Big Deal” will have you off your ass, wanting to dance and sing along, but don’t be fooled: the harrowing backdrop of “Airshow Disaster” and “Lose My Head” will remind you that Damien breaks more than chairs, so watch out for your heart.
