Album Notes
the Grey A's debut album is a politipop opera built to be enjoyed from beginning to end. The arc of the 11 song narrative reveals itself more with every listen. the Grey A is the brainchild of Texas songwriter and former Glossary member Grey Jacks. Recorded in Nashville, TN it features some of the best indie players around, including Merge records recording artist William Tyler.

"The Grey A's new record 'My Country' puts a corrupt and rapacious elite in its crosshairs, pairing pop with (the) polemic, sometimes to a jarring effect….with fistfuls of horns and crunching guitar.” - NPR

"My Country by the Grey A stands apart from much of the music being made and played today. It is not cheery optimism and it is not nihilism. Infectious groove(s), chiming keyboards and glorious background vocals direct (these) stirring pop anthem(s) of the people. This is not disposable 'pop music', but in the best sense of the word it is pop music. It is meant for repeated listening and maybe an open-minded willingness to have one's mind changed, even about the meaning of these songs." - No Depression
