Damien Jurado

Damien Jurado Sarah Jurado

Indie rock singer-songwriter Damien Jurado has come a long way from his humble beginnings self-releasing cassettes of his lo-fi folk recordings. The Seattle-based artist recently released his tenth studio album, Maraqopa, which is his second album produced by Seceretly Canadian label-mate Richard Swift.

The two compliment each other well and the album is a sort of sequel to the pair’s previous collaboration, Saint Bartlett. Like the previous record, Maraqopa explores various tones throughout the course of the album, while still remaining one cohesive work.

Jurado sits down With David Dye to talk about his new album, and performs the title-track "Maraqopa.'
