Reviews

Jack Black, CIA és vegytiszta örömzene
MNO
Édesapja, Charlie minden idők egyik legjobb dzsesszbőgőse volt, sógora pedig az a Jack Black, akit ugyan Hollywoodban komikusként tartanak számon, ám gitárvirtuóznak sem utolsó. Josh Haden először járt Magyarországon Spain nevű együttesével. Közvetlenségéből, zene iránti alázatából sokan tanulhatnának. Interjú. [Read More...]

Tatsächlich strecken die vielleicht schönsten Indie-Pop-Perlen des Jahres ihren Stecknadelkopf aus dem Samt & Seide-Musiktempel: "It Could Be Heaven" und "Sunday Morning" sind ungewohntes Terrain für die Band, die aber so wunderbar perlend und melancholisch durch die Nacht gleiten, dass man sie einfangen und nie wieder loslassen möchte.

Spain - Sargent Place
Rhythms Magazine
‘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"
Utne Reader
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
AXS
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. [Read More...]
Review: Spain live at Amoeba Music, Hollywood, California
Music Zeitgeist
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. [Read More...]

Josh Haden’s Spain premieres all-new ‘Sargent Place’ with family in mind
AXS
Josh Haden’s Spain has been the worst-kept secret amongst discriminating music fans and post-millennials in L.A. and everywhere else. For close to 20 years, the vocalist/bassist/composer’s been keeping the dream world alive in subterranean, subconscious music that sinks into the core — beneath reason and pretense, into everyone’s universal language.

Magnet Magazine
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 Key by WXPN
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. [Read More...]
Spain's Josh Haden
Vents Magazine
Sargent Place is the new album from my band Spain. We recorded it in a house on a street in the Elysian Park area of Los Angeles called Sargent Place. The house was rented by our producer Gus Seyffert. It was a very intense two weeks of recording and mixing and that’s probably why I chose the street name for the title. Pages 80-81

Tegelijkertijd is dit de meest verscheidene Spain-release tot op heden. Wij hoorden er bij vlagen ook de kamermuziek van Leonard Cohen of de tijdloze JJ Cale in. Pluimen die Josh Haden waarschijnlijk maar wat graag op zijn hoed zal steken. [Read More...]

Extra Music Magazine
Sargent Place è un coacervo di suoni ben distinti, di chitarre mai invadenti, di basso propulsivo, ma di una spinta quasi silenziosa, antigravitazionale. Non è un disco triste, ma un assaggio di primavera che mette fuoco ai pensieri, alle riflessioni sfruttando idee ben chiare nella testa di Josh, ospiti d’onore, ottimi musicisti e soprattutto la famiglia.
