The Jayhawks - Back Roads and Abandoned Motels

Regular price $25.00 $0.00

Though technically a Jayhawks album, Back Roads and Abandoned Motels takes on the unusual task of exploring songs written and cowritten for other artists by the band's frontman, Gary Louris - a side hustle Louris leaned into more heavily when the Jayhawks went on hiatus in the mid-2000s. Despite their provenance, the songs here fit comfortably into the rootsy, reflective, but subtly polished sound the band has mined throughout their three-decade career. With touches of Celtic music, low-key gospel, and CSNY-esque folk-rock, Back Roads is a testament to the idea that no matter where he goes, Louris can't help but be himself. - Apple Music
