Ray LaMontagne - Gossip In The Grain LP


Recorded with returning producer Ethan Johns in Box, England, and touching upon a range of styles and musical settings spanning pastoral folk, railroad blues, front porch country, and plangent balladry, Gossip In The Grain proves to be his most creative and emotionally expansive collection to date. Whereas LaMontagne's two previous albums were largely solo affairs with Johns serving as multitasking instrumentalist, Gossip In The Grain sees him joined by members of his touring band, bassist Jennifer Condos and guitarist Eric Heywood (with Johns largely handling drum duties). Along with his band members, LaMontagne is also joined on two tracks - "A Falling Through" and "I Still Care For You" - by singer/songwriter Leona Naess.
