Louris & Olson

I really should write a more detailed post on how much I love Gary Louris & Mark Olson's Ready for the Flood, but for now this interview with the ex-Jayhawks and current partners will have to do. (PopMatters)

Louris concedes that he and Olson were in no place to be objective about their new work. “We wanted to be in the studio, we hadn’t worked together in a long time, and it was kind of a heavy, emotional session. We knew we wanted someone there to help us sort through stuff, because we can certainly fall into the doubting, insecure mode. I think both of us feel that we’re either the shit or we’re shit. You know, it’s hard to tell. There’s no way to tell. Depending on the moment you feel like, ‘Wow, this is the greatest or this is horrible.’ So we needed somebody that we trusted who was our friend.”
