Inland (Gray Matters)
by Jars of Clay

FOR FANS OF: The Civil Wars, The Decemberists, Sixpence None The Richer
Rating: 4 Stars

Almost 20 years have passed since Jars Of Clay exploded with Frail, but the group continues pushing creative and lyrical boundaries eleven albums later. Rather than taking the safe and easy radio route, the group turns to producer Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists) for a hipster-friendly journey of melodic pop treasures that candidly discuss life’s many emotions during uncertain times.
