Shearwater and Damien Jurado tour together, hold a contest to see who can be quiet the longest

Jonathan Meiburg from Shearwater and Damien Jurado are both sensitive dudes, so it makes sense that they would team up together for a US tour this fall, Shearwater supporting their recent The Golden Archipelago (TMT Review) on Matador and Jurado slingin’ his equally new Saint Bartlett (TMT Review) on Secretly Canadian. What doesn’t make sense, though, is the “see who can be quiet the longest” contest that they seem to have decided to both participate in during their tour. Guys, I know both of your singing voices barely register above a whisper, but is this really necessary? My money is on Jurado, as I’m pretty sure Meiburg will immediately lose once he lets out his bellowing baritone every night.

Catch them this fall on the road and find out for yourself.
