Listen to our session with Minnesota native and co-founder of the Jayhawks Olson, who returned to our studios with his wife and musical partner Ringvold (a native of Norway) on December 13, 2017.We talked about the making of their latest album, Spokeswoman of the Bright Sun, which they recorded at their home in Joshua Tree. We also heard about their time in Albania, where Ringvold learned to play a folk instrument called the qanon, which plays an important part on the new disc.
