This looks like a real band! Curious why Dave isn't part of it.

Like Jay's "mod" look in the last photo. Rock n roll, baby!

Wow--what a 180 from the Trace shows! He was recording this music while playing those lovely acoustic sets--pretty amazing. Jay sounds very committed--great singing and powerful guitar work. I can't wait to hear it loud on a good system and see him play this music live!

Hope the record release gets widespread coverage and that an effort is made to promote it. As much as I enjoy being part of select group of high brow fans who "get" Jay's music, he deserves far greater recognition. Would like to see them again on national late night TV--I know, no one watches TV anymore--hell, NPR Tiny Desk or KEXP live show would be great too.

Ballymena is a digital-only bonus track. And it looks like the album cover of at least some versions is a very cool industrial-looking graphic of a train car, rather than Mermaid/Dufnering Jay.

Looks like the "power trio" Jay mentioned was Jay on guitar, Mark Spencer on bass, Jacob Edwards on drums.

JAY FARRAR - vocal, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, organ
JACOB EDWARDS - drums, percussion
MARK SPENCER - backing vocal, bass, weissenborn, piano
GARY HUNT - backing vocal, fiddle
JASON KARDONG - pedal steel

In the golf world, Jay's style of sitting is called Dufnering. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't see what the problem is with the cover... grunge mermaids have a long tradition of playing rockin trax.

I have a sneaking suspicion it is the cover. And, yeah, I don't like it.
