Paging Mr. Proust finds the 2016 Jayhawks still remain one of America s foremost rock bands: based around leader Gary Louris gift for melody that has made them such a respected and seminal group for almost three decades. Paging Mr. Proust features the long-time core of the Jayhawks: Gary Louris (lead vox/guitars), Marc Perlman (bass), Tim O Reagan (drums/vox), and Karen Grotberg (keyboards/vox).
From the jangle of album opener Quiet Corners & Empty Spaces to the trademark harmonies of Isabel s Daughter to the more pensive Lover Of The Sun , it is clear that The Jayhawks power remains undiminished from their initial national impact, 1992 s Hollywood Town Hall. Other tracks such as the sludgy rocker Lost The Summer , the kraut-rock groove of Ace and the taut minimalism of Comeback Kids bring new sounds to the palette. Paging Mr. Proust shows a commitment to adventure and forward motion, which makes this collection of songs exciting and instantly memorable.
