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.

Josh Haden’s Spain premieres all-new ‘Sargent Place’ with family in mind
Josh Haden’s Spain has been the worst-kept secret amongst discriminating music fans and post-millennials in L.A. and everywhere else.

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.

Spain's Josh Haden
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.

SPAIN “SARGENT PLACE” - Review
With this record the comeback starts to make sense - there’s been a shift, nothing dramatic, in truth nothing much has changed, but you know how different a face can look with a different haircut even though it is the same face, Spain have had a haircut. [Read More...]

Spain é um pequeno milagre no meio da cansada música alternativa. Sargent Place é bem feito, bem composto, bem tocado e com muita classe. Se você gosta desta forma ébria e nada fofa de autocomiseração, caia dentro. [Read More...]
Spain, 'Sargent place' / Review
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...]

Spain - Sargent Place / Review
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.
