Ready For The Flood

Ready For The Flood by Mark Olson
Released: Jan 2009
Label: New West
Ready for the Flood mirrors the first impression of the partnership of the Jayhawks founders, Mark Olson and Gary Louris, finally reunited after 13 years. Recorded in eight days, it's a gut-checked affair produced by the Black Crowes' Chris Robinson, who surpasses the less-is-more mantra to achieve a Zen-like level of zero intervention. Like Blue Earth, the collection relies on little more than the dynamic of the songwriters and a couple of strumming guitars keeping things afloat. Like always, their songs are faded and familiar, with plenty of space and elegant harmonies.
