ALBUM REVIEW: Spain – Sargent Place

Rating8grcd786-500x500Spain’s music is generally slow, swirling, soulful and hypnotic with its core sound circling itself with only minor variation. After a decade-long break Josh Haden returned with The Soul Of Spain in 2012 and now Sargent Place continues the same vibe with some psych rock explorations on the opening track and warm currents of gospel music flowing through other songs. Spain have never faltered on their recordings and this is no exception as Haden’s bass provides the songs’ heartbeat and his soft tones deliver his late-night poetry. Jazz, soul, blues and more blend into the unique and mesmerising sound of Spain.
