SPOTLIGHT VIDEO: The Jayhawks – Backwards Women
As part of our brand-new Spotlight feature, we asked the Jayhawks, July’s Spotlight band, to make us a video. Nothing fancy, we said, just something that shows the band in daily life.
They came back with this rehearsal of the song “Backwards Women,” from their new album, Back Roads and Abandoned Motels (read our review here). The video was taken on May 31 in their space in St. Paul, Minn., as they were gearing up for some summer tour dates.
You can find upcoming Jayhawks tour dates here, and be sure to check out our other features from the band’s time in ND’s Spotlight, including an interview with Gary Louris on writing songs with others, and an essay from band member John Jackson on Louris’ spirit of collaboration.
