Music Review: 'The Blue Moods of Spain'
Spain’s frontman is Josh Haden, son of jazz bassist Charlie Haden. This paternal influence looms large on Spain’s debut: Josh’s bass guitar thumps prominently behind his slo-mo sultry vocals, spare guitar chords, and the distant brush of a snare drum. The resulting cigarette-and-coffee blues proffers a sip of excitement and puffs of tranquility. B+
