Spain - Sargent Place

Spain - Sargent Place



Critically acclaimed Los Angeles based band Spain release 'Sargent Place,' their highly anticipated 5th studio album. The band is now at home with Dine Alone Records.

For nearly 20 years the music of Josh Haden and Spain has provided a soundtrack for the dreams and waking life of fans the world over, with a signature style that often stirs something deep in the soul of the listener.   Sargent Place builds on that decades long legacy and pushes it into inspiring new directions.

In some respects, 'Sargent Place' acts as a truer return to form than 2012's 'The Soul Of Spain,' for while that album marked the band's first recorded work in over a decade, the album featured material written by Haden in the 1990s in earlier incarnations of the band. With the exception of "It Could Be Heaven", "Waking Song" and the opener "Love at First Sight," all written previously by Haden, the songs for 'Sargent Place' were written by the group in the run up to this album, with many songs only taking shape during the recording process.

Key to that process was the work of enigmatic producer Gus Seyffert (The Black Keys, Norah Jones, Sia,?Beck). In addition to bringing the band into his personal studio, located in the section of Echo Park that graces the album's title, Seyffert helped to shape many of the tracks on the album, some of which were radically rearranged in the process of recording.
