But now, Johannes is ready to go it alone. Next week, his solo debut, Spark, will be released on Josh Homme's Rekords Rekords. The album is lush with textures and emotional subject matter. But it's not a downer. It's upbeat and down-home, infused with Johannes' style-hopping from rock, to flamenco, to middle eastern influence.
Today at 10 am, the album will stream at his website and Johannes plays at Amoeba on October 5th at 7:00, so go and congratulate on some rock well done.
