Winter is now officially over and the new Spain album will make you feel like contemplating the world on a gentle summer’s evening. After a break of two years, Josh Haden is back and caresses us again with his warm voice. Carolina is an invitation to sit at Haden’s dinner table and look back at his past. “I wanted to get back to my musical family roots of country and of my dad who passed away two years ago. This is the first album I released since my dad died.” Charlie Haden was the most significant contrabassist of the 20th century and defined the style of Free Jazz. He passed away in Los Angeles in July 2014, only a few weeks before his 77th birthday. Josh’s father has been involved in all the previous recordings, as a musician as well as a mentor: “If he doesn’t approve, I usually have to go back and fix the mixes.”

Spain, the band that influenced the genre of slowcore with their very own interpretation of slowlness, have kept us waiting once before. After the band’s debut The Blue Moods Of Spain in 1995 and extensive touring through the USA, Australia and Europe, they gathered a large international following. The first album was followed by She Haunts My Dreams (1999) and I Believe (2001). The music of Spain was featured on soundtracks for movies (The End Of Violnece directed by Wim Wenders, 1997) and TV series (Six Feet Under, HBO 2003) and was covered by Johnny Cash and the Red Hot Chili Peppers among others. It then went quiet for a couple of years after which front man Josh Haden reunited the band with different members. In 2012 they released The Soul Of Spain, their first album on Glitterhouse Records. It was followed by The Morning Becomes Eclectic, a live Session at the brilliant KCRW radio station in Santa Monica, and their fourth album Sargent Place.
