Biography

Spain is an indie rock band founded in 1993 by bassist/vocalist Josh Haden (son of jazz bass legend Charlie Haden).

Spain's debut 1995 CD, "The Blue Moods Of Spain", was released to much fanfare and enabled the band to tour the U.S., Europe, and Australia. The album was included on many music magazine "best of" lists for the year, and Spain performed on French ... Read more in Amazon's Spain Store

I remain astonished at the intensity of this album and I must have played it hundreds of times. From the opening bars of 'It's so True' thro to the final chorus of 'Spiritual' (no one ever prayed like THIS before), the musicianship and underplayed lyrics convey a raw tortured beauty which I last experienced listening to Jeff Buckley's live shows. It rubs shoulders with Miles' 'Kind of Blue', Jeff's 'Grace', Nick Drake's 'Pink Moon' and Will Oldham's 'I see a Darkness'. Music to sit down and actually LISTEN to. Wonderful stuff !

Whatever your taste of music is, this album is a treat. For those who are consciously malancholic or those who indulge themselves in the emotional side of themselves once in a whille. This is terrific stuff!!

The Blue Moods of Spain is one of the best albums I own, certainly when you narrow my collection down to the 90s. The title says it all really, and it differs from She haunts my dreams because this album is slower and even more melancholic than the second one. Spain is one of those bands who can't be expected to be successful with singles. You have to listen to the whole cd or not at all. Josh Haden is terrific on bass and vocals and all melodies are unforgettably beautiful. My personal favorites are I lied, Untitled #1, Ray of light, Spiritual and Ten nights. This album is not of this world.

Slow, smooth, sultry - these are apt adjectives to describe the music in this CD. When I first came across it several years ago, I couldn't decide whether I was attracted by the special "mood" or repelled by the mannerism. With repeated listenings, I have to conclude that I love it. Call me bad taste if you want, but the music is really enjoyable!

Imagine Nick Drake teamed up with Wes Mongommery. That might give you a vauge idea of what Spain sound like.

Don't take this concept to litterally. The guitar player in Spain does not emphasize solos, and the singer does not sound exactly like Nick Drake. Yet, this is jazzy, smokey music with understaded vocals. It is quiet and contemplative, yet informed by the blues. It is also atmospheric, without ever losing the importance of the songs.

Both the writting and playing are excellent, if understated. Give it a chance, because it is subtle, but has a lot of subtance, and will grow on you if you live with it for awhile.

I bought this after I fell in love with their second CD, She haunts my dreams. This is also good, but the lyrics are not up to the same level and the song doesn't fit as well. The music is god but has also improved from the first CD to the second CD. If you want to try their music you should start out with the second album. If you love it you will probably like this one much also.
Rumours have that they will start record their third album in April 2000. I look forward to it with great antisipation.

Do you need a musical expression for your blues? This is it! Does the cruelty and hoplessness of the world make you melancholic? This might not help, but it's excellent for tears, self-pity or just candlelights. The music is soft, velvety and dark. It's kind of a Nick Cave meets Chet Baker. There's a lot of slow piano and the misty vocals. It's definetly blue, but maybe just a bit too slow.
