You know those songs that follow you around for months on end, the ones that show up on playlist after playlist you never skip because it’s always a song you want to hear? Damien Jurado’s ‘So On, Nevada’ has been one of those for me since February. I don’t mind.
Damien Jurado released one of the finest albums of the year, Maraqopa, in Feburary. If you’ve yet to hear it or buy it, you must- it is something you will love. Enjoy.
Bonus: ‘Working Titles,’ also from Maraqopa, is my favorite song released so far this year. Just thought I’d mention that for about the 15th time around here. It is a perfect song.
