Things are about to get trippy. This video for “Nothing Is the News” introduces us to the lo-fi expanse of Damien Jurado’s forthcoming album Maraqopa. Recently premiered on Alternative Press, it signals the development of an intriguing psychedelic bent in Jurado’s new work. Clean electric guitar riffs swirl as a narrative of two lovers in danger unfolds among muted vacant buildings. The video was directed by Nathan Vollmar and produced by William Winchester Claytor. Fans can catch Jurado live on an upcoming North American tour with Jagjaguwar’s Peter Wolf Crier.
