Mark Olson Gary Louris Ready Flood

Serving as Mark Olson and Gary Louris’ first official album together since Olson’s departure from the Jayhawks in 1995, Ready for the Flood is a record full of tracks reflecting the duo’s deep-seated Americana roots. Produced by the Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson, the album’s 13 tracks showcase the duo’s ability to harmonize over chugging back-porch jams and fill complete rooms with soft acoustic tones. Ready for the Floor brings back elements of the Jayhawks’ sound — one that is so finely ingrained in Olson and Louris’ musical makeup.
