Blue-Eyed Soul Band Spain Bring Their Disquieting Sounds to NYC
For the past twenty-odd years, Josh Haden’s group Spain have occupied a unique, distantly Lynchian netherworld of blue-eyed soul and moody, purist pop tunesmithing, sort of like the Eels playing Orbison – or vice versa. They’re making a rare couple of stops in NYC, first at the Lincoln Center Atrium on Jan 29 at 7:30 PM for free, early arrival being the keyword there. They’re also at Rough Trade on Feb 3 at 9 for $15. [Read More...]

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...]
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.

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...]
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.

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.
