    Smile


    180 Gram Remastered Vinyl With Bonus Tracks


    First Time On Vinyl!


    With Smile, the Jayhawks drop yet another sizable chunk of their alt-country sound by the roadside, adding in its place healthy doses of power pop and
    modern electronic music. Almost half of Smile's songs feature looped percussion, overdubbed drum tracks, or flat-out, funky backbeats. Despite the
    modern touches, though, the fact remains that Smile retains just enough of a distinctly Americana feeling. On the warm and twangy Better Days, one of
    Louris' best songs, he sings with genuine regret and heartache the way he treated a long ago lover, and on Break in the Clouds he celebrates the
    comforts of domestic contentment, complete with pedal steel and soaring harmonies that recall the band's landmark work Hollywood Town Hall from
    1992. What never changes on the Jayhawks' albums, it seems, are the blissful melodies and well-constructed tunes. This remastered edition includes
    bonus tracks.

    Rainy Day Music


    180 Gram Remastered Vinyl With Bonus Tracks


    Rainy Day Music begins the next chapter in the storied career of The Jayhawks - a band readily cited as among the pioneers of the "alt country" sound.
    The Jayhawks' seventh album backs away from their super-pop releases like Smile and the underrated Sound of Lies and looks back to their earlier,
    rootsier sound. A crisp, gorgeous collection of songs, the back-to basics Rainy Day Music took The Jayhawks a mere six weeks to record and mix from
    start to finish. The album channels the ghosts of the Byrds, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Buffalo Springfield, and interpreting their '60s folk jangle and lazy,
    sunny harmonies through The Jayhawks' own sweetly awkward formula. The first six tracks are all vintage Louris gems -- trembling and honest, with
    warm melodies and hooks for days. Frontman Gary Louris says of the album "It has a rainy day, English countryside kind of feel to it. I think we have been
    described as a very American band with a very British songwriting style. Maybe that has something to do with it." This remastered edition includes bonus
    tracks.
