As the release of their new album No Trail and Other Unholy Paths is upon us, Americana-noir project Jaye Jayle have dropped a stream of “Cemetery Rain.” The song is a propulsive, groove-laden track that features a Univox Mini-Korg K2 as its lead instrument. We had never heard of that instrument either.
Frontman Evan Patterson commented on the song, “The arrangement for ‘Cemetery Rain’ was written on the guitar several years before the idea hit me to transpose the main elements to the synthesizer. Immediately, the entire song took form. As if a UFO had landed in my front yard and one of the greatest mysteries of the world was revealed. Aliens may not be real, but walking in the cemetery… in the rain… is very real. I have lived that.”
