LOS ANGELES - Oct. 27, 2014 - PRLog -- On Tuesday October 28 at 9:00 AM EST, NPR affiliate WXPN, in Philadelphia, will premiere “Sargent Place,” the critically-acclaimed new album by iconic slowcore progenitors Spain. Dubbed “dark mysterious glamour” by Q Magazine, Sargent Place features rich lush soundscapes laid forth by vocalist/bassist Josh Haden, keyboardist/guitarist Randy Kirk, drummer Matt Mayhall and lead guitarist Daniel Brummel. Produced by Gus Seyffert (The Black Keys, Norah Jones, Beck, Sia), at his studio on Sargent Place street in Elysian Park, Los Angeles, the 10-song opus features “You & I,” the last song Josh’s father Charlie (Haden) recorded on, and “The Fighter,” which features sister Petra (of The Haden Triplets) on violin and backing vocals.

In conjunction with the album premiere, Magnet Magazine will premiere the music video for the album’s lead single, "Love At First Sight.” Directed by Niko Solorio, the story unfolds at Time Travel Mart, at 1714 Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park, Los Angeles. Specializing in products imported from the past and future, the eclectic vibrant store carries random oddities such as Viking odorant, robot milk, robot toupees, robot emotions, mammoth chunks, and a replica of the Stanley Cup. The Mart is also home-base for 826LA, a non-profit writing and tutoring center dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.

Making time stand still in a sphere of languid beauty, Spain will celebrate Sargent Place, out November 4th via Dine Alone Records, with a special live set at Amoeba Music, at 6400 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, on Thursday November 6th at 6:00 PM PST. Afterwards, the band will sign copies of the album.

For nearly 20 years the music of Josh Haden and Spain has provided a soundtrack for the dreams and waking life of fans the world over, with a singular style that often stirs something deep in the soul of the listener. 2014’s Sargent Place, builds on that decades long legacy and pushes it into inspiring new directions.  From the opener, “Love At First Sight,” detailing the initial spark of a romance to the contemplative closer, “Waking Song,” the album falls solidly in line with the highly regarded early discography of the band, The Blue Moods Of Spain (1996), She Haunts My Dreams (1999) and I Believe (2001), as well as their most recent recording, The Soul Of Spain (2012).
