EDITORS’ NOTES

Spain are a ghost band: not only is their music gorgeously haunting, but they also released three lovely albums from 1995 to 2001 and then basically disappeared. While 2012's The Soul of Spain featured older material, Sergeant Place is brand-new stuff, and it's a welcome return. Josh Haden once again slows things to a crawl on shimmering tunes like "Let Your Angel" and "To Be a Man," his voice floating above the sparse bed of guitar-bass-drums like clouds over a desert plain. While "Sunday Morning" qualifies as peppy for a band this languid, this record is a meditation on melancholy moods, fit for rainy days and strong coffee.
