Achingly minimal, Spain releases Sargent Place, their fifth and latest studio full length in the US today. These are perhaps some of the best stripped down songs released in 2014, and this Tunesday’s cut, “Love At First Sight” is the standout among standouts for me. There is no filler here, just vocalist and bassist Josh Haden’s raw musicianship channeling the sparse energy of clear emotion.
I’m going to let this one sing for itself but I will say that “Love At First Sight” is far too close to home to not dedicate to my magical wife.
Turn out the lights, sit back and enjoy.
