Jayhawks, The - Rainy Day Music [2LP]


$ 34.98 


Rainy Day Music begins the next chapter in the storied career of The Jayhawks - a band readily cited as among the pioneers of the ''alt country'' sound.
The Jayhawks' seventh album backs away from their ''super-pop'' releases like Smile and the underrated Sound of Lies and looks back to their earlier,
rootsier sound. A crisp, gorgeous collection of songs, the back-to basics Rainy Day Music took The Jayhawks a mere six weeks to record and mix from
start to finish. The album channels the ghosts of the Byrds, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Buffalo Springfield, and interpreting their '60s folk jangle and lazy,
sunny harmonies through The Jayhawks' own sweetly awkward formula. The first six tracks are all vintage Louris gems -- trembling and honest, with
warm melodies and hooks for days. Frontman Gary Louris says of the album ''It has a rainy day, English countryside kind of feel to it. I think we have been
described as a very American band with a very British songwriting style. Maybe that has something to do with it.'' This remastered edition includes bonus
