Äntligen nytt album med Jayhawks

Excellenta och mycket efterlängtade nyheter för alla Jayhawks fans.
Det är ju trots allt snart fem år sedan "Mockinbird Time" kom och ytterligare i sammanhanget
svindlande 13 till "Rainy Day Music".
Releasedag för nya albumet "Paging Mr. Proust" som släpps på Thirty Tigers är satt till 29 april.
Innan dess kan ni njuta av av ovanstående magnifika liveupptagning från KEXP studion i Seattle
som gjordes i januari 2015.
Där visar Gary Louris och vänner med skärpa att man är minst lika perfekt musikalisk balans
som någonsin tidigare.
Nedanstående bullentin publicerades på bandets hemsida för ett par dagar sedan.
"The 11-song new album finds the 2016 Jayhawks still remain one of America’s foremost rock bands: based around leader Gary Louris’ gift for melody that has made them such a respected and seminal group for almost three decades.

Paging Mr. Proust features the long-time core of the Jayhawks: Gary Louris (lead vox/guitars), Marc Perlman (bass), Tim O’Reagan (drums/vox), and Karen Grotberg (keyboards/vox). Paging Mr. Proust was co-produced by Louris, REM’s Peter Buck and Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Modest Mouse, My Morning Jacket) and recorded at Martine’s Flora Recording & Playback in Portland, OR. From the jangle of album opener “Quiet Corners & Empty Spaces” to the trademark harmonies of “Isabel’s Daughter” to the more pensive  “Lover Of The Sun”, it is clear that The Jayhawks’ power remains undiminished from their initial national impact, 1992’s Hollywood Town Hall.

Other tracks such as the sludgy rocker “Lost The Summer”, the kraut-rock groove of “Ace” and the taut minimalism of “Comeback Kids” bring new sounds to the palette.  “Leaving The Monsters Behind” features a trademark vocal turn from special guest Mike Mills. “We worked harder in pre-production than any previous Jayhawks record,” says Louris, having demoed most of the songs in his home studio before extensive workshopping with the band, and eventually recording in the hospitable confines of Martine’s studio.

Paging Mr. Proust shows a commitment to adventure and forward motion, which makes this collection of songs exciting and instantly memorable."
