- Ready for the Flood
- Artist: Mark Olson
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 1/27/2009
Vinyl LP release. 2009 release, the long-awaited reunion of former Jayhawks bandmates Mark Olson and Gary Louris. Olsen and Louris have made a largely acoustic album that has all original material and a fine vocal blend that makes you think of old-timey and bluegrass brother teams like the Monroes, the Delmores and the Louvins. They've got that intuitive ear for blending and weaving that exists on some genetic level. They're part of that DNA loop that started back with the Carter Family and has been winding down musical trails since early last century. Add in some English folk finger picking influence by guys like Roy Harper and John Renbourn, stir in some current-day surrealist points of view a la Dylan, and you're on the way to where the album resides. Produced by Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes.
