Rainy Day Music
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 2003 album including six bonus tracks. RAINY DAY MUSIC begins the next chapter in the storied career of The Jayhawks - a band readily cited as among the pioneers of the Alt Country sound. The Jayhawks' seventh album backs away from their Pop releases like SMILE and the underrated SOUND OF LIES and looks back to their earlier, rootsier sound. A crisp, gorgeous collection of songs, the back-to basics RAINY DAY MUSIC took The Jayhawks a mere six weeks to record and mix from start to finish. The album channels the ghosts of the Byrds, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Buffalo Springfield, and interpreting their '60s Folk jangle and lazy, sunny harmonies through The Jayhawks' own sweetly awkward formula.
