Spain Σάββατο 7 Φεβρουαρίου
Το τελευταίο άλμπουμ των Spain, Sargent Place, κυκλοφόρησε το 2014 αποσπώντας διθυραμβικές κριτικές από τον διεθνή μουσικό Τύπο. Η παραγωγή του δίσκου έγινε από τον Gus Seyffert (The Black Keys, Beck, Norah Jones) και η μίξη από τον Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead, Atoms for Peace, Paul McCartney) απογειώνοντας το καλλιτεχνικό αποτέλεσμα και κάνοντας πολλούς να μιλάνε για τον καλύτερο δίσκο των Spain από το “θρυλικό” The Blue Moods of Spain του 1995.

Spain til Danmark
I 2012 gæstede Spain Voxhall, hvor GAFFAs Bjarke Kirkegaard Nielsen stod på pletten. Han gav det introverte band fem udadvendte stjerner og skrev: "Spains musik kan bedst beskrives som musik, man kan lukke øjnene til uden at falde i søvn, eller som en kop varm suppe på en vinterdag. Det føles bare godt." [Read More...]

Spain - Sargent Place
‘You And I’, the song graced by Charlie’s acoustic bass, poignantly opens with the lines “Our love will never die” – a fitting farewell from father to son. ‘To Be A Man’ also reads like a son to father conversation, Josh sighing, “Can’t you see that you’re my best friend?” [Read More...]
Utne Reader Monthly Music Sampler: Spain's "The Fighter"
The son of the late, legendary jazz bassist Charlie Haden (his final studio recordings are on the album) and the brother to equally talented musicians Petra and Rachel Haden, Josh utilized his family’s rich musical talent on this recording, and their presence—both physically and spiritually—is felt throughout. A case in point is “The Fighter,” which features a tune originally plucked out on an acoustic guitar gifted to Josh by Rachel, and elegant backing vocals and strings from Petra. [Read More...]

Spain’s Josh Haden leaves doors open for listening value in latest release
Critics and fans have called the music of Josh Haden’s Spain dreamy, layered, even “jazz-tinged slow core.” The band’s latest release, Sargent Place, produced by Gus Seyffert (Norah Jones, Beck) continues that floating thread of a subconscious, faraway inner turmoil longing for respite or recourse.

Review: Spain live at Amoeba Music, Hollywood, California
Haden and his colleagues came on without much fanfare and began to barely finger the strings of their gorgeous sounding instruments – the gold-strung electric bass, the vintage Gretsch, every note a delicious, warm-bottomed, thrum across the floor and into our feet, bellies and hearts. People in the aisles started leaning their heads on each other, and swaying back and forth, and holding hands.

Film At 11: Spain
L.A.’s Spain readies for the release of fifth album Sargent Place, out November 4. The band recently made a new video for “Love At First Sight,” and MAGNET is premiering it here. The song itself is a chilled-out slow jam, and the clip that accompanies moves at an equally slow pace. In fact, the whole video is centered around time as we slowly follow the adventures of one indecisive man. [Read More...]

Stream The New Spain Album
The principle singer and songwriter of Spain is Josh Haden, the son of jazz legend Charlie Haden, and brother to the Haden triplet sisters, Petra, Rachel and Tanya. Spain began in 1993 and released their debut album, The Blue Moods Of Spain, in 1995. In 2001, Haden took a hiatus and reformed the band in 2007. Seductive, moody, and touched by a hint of jazz and late night romanticism, the debut album set a high standard for singer-songwriters.
