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.

Damien Jurado Performs Two Songs off New Album for i-D Magazine

In this new i-N session, Damien Jurado performs “Museum of Flight” and “So On, Nevada” off of his soon-to-be-released album, Maraqopa. It’s Damien as we know him best; no frills, just man and his guitar. i-D Magazine writes,“Incredibly capable of creating music of varying art forms, from rock and roll to country, he is the unsung, underground acoustic artist of our generation.” We couldn’t have said it better.

Out on February 21st, you can pre-order Maraqopa now.

This morning RCRD LBL premiered the mp3 for the great “Museum of Flight” – the second single from Damien Jurado’s upcoming record, Maraqopa. “The track turns desperation into something quite beautiful with patient strumming, elegant piano stabs, strong melody and a wash of expert guitar lead.”
