Damien Jurado on embracing his sci-fi nerdiness & the darkness that led to an album trilogy

Damien Jurado

Damien Jurado has now composed a trilogy. What started as a dream he had turned into the beautiful album Maraqopa. Instead of just a beautiful concept record, it would mark the beginning of a creative high when he found himself furthering the story with the follow-up, 2014’s Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son, and now this year’s Visions Of Us On The Land, an excellent exploration that goes further down his psych-folk sci-fi rabbithole. But none of this came about without a few sacrifices and dark moments as he tells us all about in this candid interview.

Watch the interview above and then check out a 2014 interview between Damien and Kyle Meredith below.

Kyle is the WFPK Music Director. Email Kyle at kmeredith@lpm.org
