Watch: Damien Jurado Performs Live on KEXP’s “Morning Show”

Damien Jurado recently stopped by KEXP for an in-studio on the Morning Show with John Richards. We’ve waited eagerly for the video and now we have it! Titled Damien Jurado: Bringing It All Back Home, the session features “Working Titles,” “This Time Next Year,” “So On, Nevada” and “Horizons.” Damien’s not alone on this one either; Jon Russell and Josiah Johnson of The Head and The Heart and Jessica Dobson from The Shins, as well as his band all join in. Watch above.

See Damien live this spring and summer! Dates HERE.

LOVE FOR MARAQOPA 

“But Maraqopa signifies a shift from an album-length exercise in osmosis to a set of songs made to excite, and Jurado seems to know this….the man once dubbed “the Raymond Carver of folk” for his spare tales of other people’s anguish is stepping into the spotlight-baiting critics, even!-while fingers snap and women swoon.”
-A.V. Club

“Damien Jurado’s latest is a fantastic maze.” -Tiny Mix Tapes

“Even after 12 full-length albums, Jurado is still finding ways to grow musically. While continuing to deliver the intimate songs of hopeless love and regret for his longtime fans, he stills finds ways to surprise as he works with his magician-like collaborator. Maraqopa lingers long after the last track informs us that, ‘We are all mountains still asleep.’”-American Songwriter

“Jurado’s songwriting is comfortable without being lazy; tunes consist of deep lyrics with a few strums and a catchy melody, sometimes with an unexpected chord change forcing the song into a peculiar/pretty zone. And his tenor voice remains a world unto itself, distant and glowing.”-Seattle Times

Four Seattle Artists Take on Damien Jurado, The Seattle Times Covers

In the week leading up to Damien Jurado’s record release show, The Seattle Times shares quite a special series comprised of certain artists covering songs from the expansive Jurado catalog. All artists are tied to Seattle in some way, which only makes sense as they take on songs from the city’s own “folk boom godfather,” whose influence has proven to reach far and wide.

First we have The Head and The Heart’s Jon Russell covering “Beacon Hill,” followed by local soul band, Pickwick, doing “I am the Greatest of All Liars.” Next, Al James from Dolerean does a mighty fine job in his recreation of “Cloudy Shoes” and last, but certainly not least, Sunny Day Real Estate’s Jeremy Enigk finishes up with “Last Rights.” Each track is available for streaming at the artists links above.

Damien kicks off his tour with a record release show at The Neptune this Friday, February 17th. Full list of tour dates HERE. The new record, Maraqopa, comes out February 21st. Pick it up at one of Damien’s shows or you can still pre-order it now and receive at least one free (exclusive) 7-inch.
