Guided By Voices
The Jayhawks are back with a stunning new album. It’s their first in five years, and one of their finest achievements in a long, acclaimed career. Praise for Paging Mr. Proust is plentiful.
“From the opening notes of “Quiet Notes & Empty Spaces,” it quickly becomes clear that Paging Mr. Proust will be something special. Gary Louris’ delicate tenor floats atop beds of lush harmonies through the song’s unforgettable melody and chorus, and it’s only the beginning. Proust is the Jayhawks’ ninth album since coming together in Minneapolis in 1985….Louris and the band’s late 1990s lineup play like they never parted, with scintillating results.” – Sam Gnerre, Daily Breeze
Born during the rise of grunge and alternative rock, Collective Soul broke into mainstream popularity when they rose to international fame in 1993 with the rock anthem “Shine.” The multi-platinum quintet has been making music for two decades since then and has a catalog of #1 hits under their belts. Collective Soul helped shape and define alternative rock with lots of guitars and attitude. Collective Soul continues to rock quite simply for the love of music. The band that helped sonically define alternative rock is more focused and energized than ever. And as Ed Roland puts it, fans can continue to expect “lots of guitars and a fun attitude from the southern gentlemen of rock and roll.”
