Jaye Jayle have unearthed an outtake from the sessions that produced the band’s 2018 masterstroke No Trail and Other Unholy Paths. The song, a convolution of bandleader Evan Patterson’s Louisville roots and flair for gospel-tinged country, encapsulates Jaye Jayle’s myriad of influences into one phenomenal track.
“It was a difficult choice to not include ‘Soline’ on our album,” Patterson says. “Alas, the uplifting and almost gospel nature of the song just didn’t meld with the dark foliage of the record.”
A collaboration with Joe Manning, Deputy Director for the Louisville Story Program and multimedia artist, “Soline” convenes Patterson’s vast network of artists of all stripes to create a composite of far-reaching inspirations. Rounding out the star-studded lineup of collaborates is Cheyenne Mize on strings, Emma Ruth Rundle on guest vocals, and a choir consisting of Manning, Mize, Neal Argabright, Tory Gallager, Todd Cook, and Corey Smith.
No Trail and Other Unholy Paths was released in 2018 via Sargent House. Adopting a “Choose Your Own Adventure” concept, the record was tinged with a Lynchian paranoia that was reinforced by Dean Hurley’s production prowess. Each spin of the LP yields an inimitable adventure regardless of track sequencing. No Trail And Other Unholy Paths is an album that drives its aural dimensions to the absolute threshold — and then some.
No Trail And Other Unholy Paths is available via Sargent House here. Jaye Jayle are on tour in North America with Wovenhand this Autumn (which concludes with Jaye Jayle’s stop at Austin’s Levitation Fest) — a full tour itinerary can be found below.
