“Museum of Flight” is the second track to be released from Damien Jurado’s upcoming album, Maraqopa (“Nothing is the News” became available in November of 2011). It’s quick, simple & sad with a weight that gently registers in the sub-conscious thanks to Damien Jurado’s ever-nonchalant vocal delivery & some nicely placed synth-laced melodies that don’t require much work from the listener.
Shortly after the song’s release last week, producer Richard Swift (@swiftswift) tweeted: “internet: i want you to know that d.jurado sang the vocal for his new single only once. one single take to 2″ tape. dude’s not mucking about” – to dispel any uncertainty, this Jurado fellow is a fucking professional.
The record will be available in stores 02.21.12 (how numerically pleasing of you, Secretly Canadian).
