We're punkrockers. We don't need any of this bourgeoise music technique. [Read More...]
Verkannte Popband Spain: Die Crowd-Rocker

Josh Haden von Spain im Interview
Spain aus L.A. machen Slowcore, stimmungsvolles Singer-Songwriting mit vielen Instrumenten. Johny Cash hatte bereits ein Stück von ihnenn gecovert (Spiritual) und für Wim Wenders trugen sie zu einem Filmsoundtrack bei (The End of Violence). Am 10. Dezember spielten sie einen spontanen Live-Gig bei RDL, im Anschluss gab Sänger Josh Haden - Sohn des berühmten Jazzbassisten Charlie Haden - ein Interview.
detektor.fm-Session mit Spain
Zehn Jahre war es ruhig um die amerikanische Band Spain. So ruhig, dass man fast nicht mehr damit gerechnet hätte, Spain überhaupt nochmals auf der Bühne zu sehen. Aber sie sind zurück und gerade auf Tour in Deutschland. Spain waren zu Gast im detektor.fm-Studio.
SPAIN, IL BLUE MOOD TORNA DI MODA?
Cambiando, Josh Haden aveva finito per privare la propria scrittura dei tratti che ne facevano una seducente anomalia. Ora torna, e scopriremo se il fascino del suo songbook è ancora miracolosamente intatto, vitale, o se è tempo di consegnarlo definitivamente ai memorabilia da cui l’abbiamo recuperato. [Read More...]
Will Any Band Ever Break Up?
A good Spain song is like falling into a trance: It’s a blend of disparate, vibrato-rich sounds that, when played right, sounds inevitable. It’s also a sound very few people have heard lately: This band broke up more than a decade ago. [Read More...]

Entrevue - 29/05/12 de Spain
Onze ans après avoir croisé sa route, on retrouve Josh Haden semblable au souvenir que l’on avait conservé d’un musicien passionnément dédié à la très haute idée qu’il se fait de l’art en général et de la musique en particulier. [Read More...]
Vivo para estar em palco, ligado ao público
Se eu tenho expectativas, como artista, dou comigo em maluco. Eu mando as coisas para um chapéu e depois tiro o que acho que resulta, e muitas vezes o que acho que vai resultar não resulta e vice versa; e este disco surgiu tanto tempo depois do outro que tudo podia acontecer em termos de reacção. Então mentalizei-me que ia ser honesto comigo próprio e não tentar modelar as canções com base num conceito que podia estar errado para quem ouvisse... [Read More...]

Spain a besoin de vous

Spain - Hang Your Head Down Low
Throughout "Low's" melancholic refrain, if you listen closely, you'll find a dimly, thinly lit ray of hope amongst the mournfulness. [Read More...]
Jesus, I don't want to die alone.
It’s a powerful song in all it’s forms and covers. It’s powerful in it’s simple, devastating universality, and powerful in it’s naked honesty. [Read More...]

Q&A Josh of Spain
...it’s been almost 10 years since the last Spain record has been released. There are 2 songs on this new release are very up-tempo and even, God forbid, kinda Rock n Roll. A friend of mine told me not to mess up the Spain formula, to which I said “the songs may be faster, but they’re still in the Spain idiom with song structure, they’re Spain”. They are Blues based songs. [Read More...]

Josh Haden, Intervista all'ex Spain
Sono assolutamente d'accordo con i tuoi paragoni. Leonard Cohen è un grosso punto di riferimento per me...non a caso l'artwork di Devoted si ispira parzialmente a quello di Death Of A Ladies Man di Cohen. Inoltre, adoro sia Portishead che Massive Attack. Ciò che ha portato a questo parziale spostamento verso l'elettonica è stata la decisione di dotarsi di un computer, di protools e di un controller per tastiera; essere quindi improvvisamente in grado di registrare musica nel mio soggiorno di casa con a disposizione una miriade di differenti sonorità. A ciò puoi ovviamente aggiungere il fatto di lavorare con Dan, che è principalmente un produttore hip-hop con una visione tutta sua di come la musica debba suonare.
Spain - Artist Spotlight
Q: Your songs tend to be pretty heartbreaking. Do you have better luck in real life as compared to your songs?

A: No. (laughs)
Reign Of Spain
One of the first moves Lenny Waronker made as co-chairman of DreamWorks Records was to sign the acclaimed L.A. band Spain. Well, "She Haunts My Dreams," Spain's first album since the deal, is coming out this week--but it's not on DreamWorks. [Read More...]
