More Damien Jurado More Damien Jurado

Quietly going about his business as a cult indie troubadour, Damien Jurado has again teamed up with producer Richard Swift to create a textured, dynamic, sprawling eleventh album that offers a complexity in atmosphere far beyond the heartbreak of 2012's Maraqopa. With psych frameworks, moody synths, vocal shadowing often in falsetto and the influence of dub, Jurado's folk experimentations are brought to a percussive high in Silver Donna while Return To Maraqopa makes one wonder if he has been mentoring Cloud Control.
