Album: Mark Olson & Gary Louris, Ready for the Flood, (New West)
Sunday 07 December 2008
In a perfect world, Louris and Olson would never make a record without each other.
Sadly, reality has dictated that this is the pair's first album together since the Jayhawks' 'Tomorrow the Green Grass' in 1995 and it's taken over a year for even this to find a release. Any initial disappointment (no kick-ass country-rock) is soon dispelled by the sheer magic that happens whenever Olson and Louris sing together. This is an album of sublime and subtle highs. It's great to have them back.
Pick of the Album: Simon & Garfunkel-ish: 'Saturday Morning on Sunday Street'
