Editors’ Notes Damien Jurado’s tenth LP is a grandly romantic concept album about a man who decides to disappear from society. Jurado, too, ventures outside his comfort zone here, offering uncharacteristically hard-rocking solos (“Nothing Is the News”) and chilling backup singing (“Life Away from the Garden”). Much of Maraquopa is still Jurado doing what he does best: calmly crooning incisive lyrics from behind his charming guitar (“Working Titles,” “Maraquopa”). No respite from melancholy, these poignant tracks bear Jurado’s trademark wistfulness, especially the heartening “Museum of Flight.”
