The Jayhawks - Paging Mr. Proust, album review

Swooping Similar

This latest release from The Jayhawks, minus original member Mark Olson now departed for the second and by all accounts last time, retains much of their familiar sound, and certainly that pretty harmony filled Americana that I like, other original band member Gary Louris presumably responsible for most of this.

It is as simple to state as this, so for those familiar with their signature sound, the tracks reflecting this and which I do recommend are

Quiet Corners & Empty Spaces
Lovers of the Sun
Isabel’s Daughter
The Devil is in Her Eyes
I’ll Be Your Key

There are fine rockier numbers, but these are why I listen to this band.
