Jolie Holland:: The Living and the Dead

Sultry and sweet Jolie Holland will release the Living and the Dead on October 7th. Co-produced by Holland and Pakistani-born Shahzad Ismaily, the Living and the Dead’s is Jolie’s fourth record and features M Ward (She & Him, My Morning Jacket) lending his production skills to a song and also playing guitar on two tracks; multi-instrumentalist Ismaily added sounds via bass, moog, shruthi box and a duck call among others; and famed guitarist Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello) appears on several songs and former bandmate Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas) sings on the final track.

“I love rock and roll, but I think it was hard for me to trust the motives of it for a while,” says Holland. “Then I started listening to Neil Young and Daniel Johnston and it kind of allowed me to become inspired by that kind of sound again. I hadn’t really written rock songs before,” she continues. “On this record I felt like I really surrounded myself with some incredibly creative people.”
