Robinson Brotherhood, Chris - anyway you love, we know how you feel [2016]
Die Stimme der The Black Crowes, der Spirit von Jerry Garcia und Grateful Dead und ein wenig "Psychedelic magic". Das neue, nunmehr schon vierte Album der Chris Robinson Brotherhood um ex Black Cowes-Frontmann Chris Robinson und Gitarrist Neal Casal ist da. Mehr "bluesy" und "funky" als die Vorgänger, herrlich retro und sehr jammig. Großartig!

Hier ein vorzügliches U.S.-Review im Original:
Perhaps it's unfair -- or at least slightly reductive -- to compare the Chris Robinson Brotherhood to the work of Rich Robinson, the estranged brother of the band's leader, but listening to their 2016 albums side by side illustrates the divide between the co-leaders of the Black Crowes. Flux, the fourth album by Rich, doubles down on the earthy Southern sounds that always rooted the Crowes, but Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel, the fourth LP by the CRB, is so light it floats away on its own haze. Apart from the knowing "Leave My Guitar Alone," the rhythms aren't blues-boogie, they're nimble funk-rock colored by a psychedelic sensibility that isn't about chops but rather endless expansion. It's jam music where the playing isn't the point: it's the vibe and, sometimes, the song. Robinson certainly luxuriates in his winding words, lyrics that conjure fleeting indelible moments, but what impresses is the structure -- he doesn't write hooks, he writes melodies, where the verses slide into the chorus then glide into a bridge -- and how the band underpins these tunes with interplay that feels loose yet tight: the performances often stretch for longer than six minutes but the CRB aren't aimless, they're simply riding their groove. Such accents as early-'70s analog synths and a couple of pastoral acoustic numbers may give Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel a throwback feel but the Chris Robinson Brotherhood aren't living in the past, they're pushing jam band tradition forward by keeping their expansion focused on funk. (Stephen Thomas Erlewine / AllMusic)

Robinson Brotherhood, Chris - barefoot in the head [2017]
Kaum eine andere Band bringt uns das musikalische Erbe der californischen Hippe-Kultur der frühen Siebziger und späten Sechziger näher, als The Chris Robinsn Brotherhood, diese geniale, aktuelle Formation des ehemaligen Frontmannes der The Black Crowes. Sie transportieren nicht nur den Spirit der legendären Grateful Dead in die heutige Zeit, sondern das Feeling einer ganzen Ära. Auch mit ihrem neuen, bärenstarken Werk "Barefoot in the head" festigen sie diese Ausrichtung. Gespickt mit unbeschwerter Spielfreude und immensem musikalischem Potenzial beschert uns die Truppe einen hinreissenden Trip durch die Gefilde des californischen Jam-/Roots-/Psychedelic-/Countryrocks einer scheinbar längst vergessenen Ära und trifft damit unmittelbar den Nerv der heutigen Retro-Kultur. Ja, vor allen Dingen das Countryrock-Feeling der damaligen Zeit wird auf dem Werk ausgiebig ausgelebt - und zwar auf wunderbare Art und Weise. Lockere, frische Gitarren, auch mal eine Pedal Steel, eine Mundharmonika oder ein Banjo, fließendes Klavier, hin und wieder schön psychedelische Momente und lässige "California-Grooves" stehen im Mittelpunkt des Geschehens. Die teils ausgiebig verwendeten, spacige Keyboards der letzten Werke treten mehr in den Hintergrund und reihen sich, wenn sie mal kommen, überaus harmonisch in der herrlichen "Flow" der Musik ein. Countryrock-orientierte The Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia, New Riders Of The Purple Sage, die guten alten Byrds, die "Exile on Main Street"-Phase der Stones und gar Poco in ihren Anfängen kommen einem in den Sinn, sowie aktuell die Jamrock-Kollegen von String Cheese Incident. Es ist eine grandiose Mixtur, die dann eben doch wieder genau The Chris Robinson Brotherhood charakterisiert, auch wegen des immer wieder herausragenden gesanglichen Vortrages ihres Frontmannes. Großartig gleich der überaus rootsige Opener "Behold the seer", durch den sich ein ordentlich funkiger, dennoch sehr lockerer Groove zieht. Dazu kommt ein überaus melodischer Refrain, eingebunden in klare, transparente Gitarren und je ein unaufdringliches, kleines Keyboard- und Mundharmonika-Solo am Ende. Eine traumhaft lockere, flotte Countryrock-Linie mit toller Gitarren- und Banjo-Instrumentierung, gepaart mit etwa um 1972 angesiedelten Grateful Dead-ähnlichen Psychedelic-Tempowechseln, zieht sich durch das schön jammige, lässige, Hippie-mässige "She shares my blanket". Brillant! Apropos 1972: das fast schon ein wenig grassige, mit tollen Gitarren, Banjo und Harp inszenierte "High is not the top" könnte gar als ein verlorener Track von Neil Yopung's "Harvest"-Werk oder von Poco zu dieser Zeit durchgehen, weist aber auch Parallelen zu den Jam-Kollegen von Railroad Earth auf. Irgendwo zwischen The Band und Bob Dylan, mit Nuancen von den Rolling Stones und Grateful Dead, scheint das starke “Hark, the Herald Hermit speaks” angesiedelt zu sein, während Robinson und seine Kollegen mit dem traumhaft schönen "If you had a heart to break" noch ein kleines Retro Countryrock-/Americana-Meisterwerk gelingt, ausgestattet mit diesem unwiderstehlichen California-Flair, viel Frische, toller Gitarren- und Klavier-Begleitung, unterbrochen von einem sehr kurzen, raueren Break in der Mitte. Eine irre starke Nummer! Der finale, psychedelische Rootsrocker "Good to know" schließt dieses tolle Album schließlich in typisch jammiger CRB-Manier ab. Abschließend das Statement eines amerikanischen Rezensenten, der resümiert: "As both, The Black Crowes and The Grateful Dead, have now become part of rock’s past and not its present, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood is a welcome refuge for fans of both. But make no mistake, 'Barefoot In The Head' doesn’t ape either band, it takes the best of both and runs it through its own carefree filter. This is hippie music at its finest since the original hippies ruled". Passt! Sicher eines der stäksten Alben von The Chris Robinson Brotherhood überhaupt. Ein super Teil!

1. Behold the Seer - 4:22

Robinson Brotherhood, Chris - if you lived here, you would be home by now [2016]
5-Track EP! Nur wenige Monate nach der Veröffentlichung des hoch gelobten Albums "Anyway you love, we know how you feel" schiebt die großartige Band um den ehemaligen The Black Crowes-Frontmann Chris Robinson mit der ebenso famosen EP "If you lived here, you would be home by now" gerade noch mal einen 5 weitere, tolle Songs umfassenden Nachschlag aus diesen Aufnahmesessions hinterher. Ja, es hamdelt sich um wirklich prächtiges Material, zumeist nicht ganz so funky, wie die Songs aus dem vorherigen Werk, sondern eher wieder lockerer und Grateful Dead-/ und Jerry Garcia-ähnlicher, sowie schön jammig. Sehr stark!

Aus der Original-Produktbeschreibung:
The Chris Robinson Brotherhood has delivered If You Lived Here, You Would Be Home By Now, a companion EP arriving just a few months after the release of their critically acclaimed studio album, Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel. The five track collection, includes New Cannonball Rag, Shadow Cosmos and Roan County Banjo, all of which were recorded during the same Stinson Beach sessions that resulted in the full length LP. With these songs already staples of The CRBs live sets, anticipation is high for the official studio recordings.

Das komplette Tracklisting:

1. New Cannonball Rag - 6:21
2. Shadow Cosmos - 5:45
3. Roan County Banjo - 7:50
4. From the North Garden - 4:43
5. Sweet Sweet Lullaby - 5:18

Robinson Brotherhood, Chris - phosphorescent harvest [2014]
The Chris Robinson Brotherhood mit ihrem herausragenden, dritten Studioalbum! Die neue Formation des The Black Crowes-Frontmannes mit einem ganz herrlichen, lockeren, den unbeschwerten Duft der freien, zwanglosen Hippe-Kultur geradezu riechenden Roots-/Jamrock-Album voller wunderbarer Psychedelic- und Westcoast-Attribute. Baumstarkes, live zuletzt schon vielfach gespieltes Songmaterial. Großartig, wie die Band ihre rootsige Grundlage, die stets spürbare Frische der Westküste und psychedelische, teils ein wenig spacige Keyboard-Linien in einen homogenen, jammigen Einklang bringt. CRB in Bestform! Die Stimme der The Black Ctowes und der Spirit von Grateful Dead - was für eine Kombination!

Die offizielle Produktbeschreibung:

The CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD are set to unveil their third studio album PHOSPHORESCENT HARVEST via Silver Arrow Records. The band--Chris Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Neal Casal (guitar, vocals), Adam MacDougall (keys, vocals), George Sluppick (drums) and Mark Dutton (bass, vocals)--will also hit the road in conjunction with the album's release. The tour officially starts April 29 at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA with dates confirmed into late May (and more to be announced).
PHOSPHORESCENT HARVEST is a treasure trove of 10 songs--including several the band road-tested over the last few years--that advances the band's kaleidoscopic sound, which is deeply soulful, rootsy and spacey all at once. There's strong songcraft here, with a free-flowing delivery; it is music that is in no hurry to reach its destination but firmly knows where it is going. From the beginning, the CRB set out to do something different from what they had done before, creating their own scene with a musical prowess, cohesive songwriting and a unified commitment to experimentation, both in the studio and on the road (they've performed over 230 shows since forming in 2011).
"The best perspective I have on what's going on in my life--good and bad--is what comes out in the songs," says Chris Robinson. "As you move on in time, you get older, you have relationships. Some of them are good, some fail. Friends. Drugs. Life. Death. People come, people go. Songwriting is a completely different emotional response to your life and to what it means, to in some poetic nature, put it out there."
PHOSPHORESCENT HARVEST follows the release of the companion albums Big Moon Ritual (June 2012) and The Magic Door (September 2012) plus last year's live quadruple vinyl Betty's S.F. Blends, Vol 1. The group continues to record with producer Thom Monahan, and Robinson wrote all of the songs with Casal, save for two that are Robinson solo compositions ("Tornado," "Jump The Turnstiles").
"We're really going by the electricity and the vibrations that we can sort of tune in to," Robinson recently told Relix magazine (Jan/Feb '14). "There's a psychedelic component to it. That's part of the greasing the wheels of the great cosmic engine, with psychedelic thought and philosophy and action. If you get my drift." He went on to talk about the more rock and roll feel on PHOSPHORESCENT HARVEST, and his overall vision for the Brotherhood: "I'm not going to have hit records. I don't write pop songs. But then again, I find a deep need to express myself and how I'm feeling and where I am and where I've been and where I'm going by writing songs. Why change something to make it easier for anyone else, when I think if we stay sincere and keep our energies in a real creative place, then people will wander into our small community, and it maybe would get more popular…to tend that garden is a great responsibility. But I want it to grow." Check out the whole Relix feature here.
Rolling Stone editor David Fricke picked the CHRIS ROBINSON BROTHERHOOD as one of his favorites of 2012, and praised their live performance in New York City, saying "…the singer's acid-country Brotherhood, with ex-Ryan Adams guitarist Neal Casal, were a sublime time onstage and across these two albums, recorded at the same sessions and issued six months apart. The Irving Plaza show was a characteristic live high. In the second set, Robinson steered out of a rattling ‘Tough Mama,' from Bob Dylan's Planet Waves, into the long reverie ‘Girl on the Mountain,' a song from an earlier side trip, New Earth Mud, given fresh air and a new coat of DayGlo paint (1/30/13)."

Robinson Brotherhood, Chris - the magic door [2012]
3 Monate nach "Big moon ritual" lassen The Chris Robinson Brotherhood (die neue, grandiose Formation des Frontmannes der The Black Crowes, nachdem die mal wieder für unbestimmte Zeit auf Eis liegen) kommt nun mit "The magic door" das angekündigte Sequal. Die Scheibe schließt nahtlos an den Vorgänger an. Wunderbarer, authentischer Hippie Roots-/Jamrock mit viel "Soul", viel Psychedeli-Feeling und einem Flair von sehr der Grateful Dead-Philosophie ähnelnden Seventies Retro Westcoast-Anlagen. Chris Robinson selbst zeigt sich bereits jetzt mehr als zufrieden über seine neue Band: "We really feel these records set the stage for another full year, where we'll see how far we can go with it. We already feel successful because we have the freedom to do what we want. And it's always cosmic. The times demand it".

Die Original-Produktbeschreibung:

In June 2012, following a 118-show journey, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood released their debut album Big Moon Ritual (Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records). It is a 'roots-o-licious collection of tunes with beautiful guitar tones, inventive parts, gorgeous solos, and killer vocals all around,' praised Guitar Player (June 2012), while Relix similarly raved by describing the album as 'a full immersion into Southern psychadelics, nine-minute song swoops, extended grooves and wailing vocals' (June 2012). The fruits of the band's hard-charging January 2012 recording sessions with producer Thom Monahan are heard not only on 'Big Moon Ritual' but in its companion album 'The Magic Door', set for release in September 2012.
Each album spotlights seven tunes, with 'The Magic Door' containing six originals 'Someday Past The Sunset', 'Vibration & Light Suite', 'Appaloosa', 'Little Lizzie Mae', 'Sorrows Of A Blue Eyed Liar' and 'Wheel Don't Roll' plus a cover of Hank Ballard's 'Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go', a CRB set list staple.
Chris Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Neal Casal (guitar, vocals), Adam MacDougall (keys, vocals), George Sluppick (drums) and Mark Dutton (bass, vocals) create exciting musical sparks throughout 'The Magic Door'. 'We really feel these records set the stage for another full year, where we'll see how far we can go with it,' say Robinson. 'We already feel successful because we have the freedom to do what we want. And it's always cosmic. The times demand it.'

Das komplette Tracklisting:

1. Let's Go Let's Go Let's Go - 4:55
2. Someday Past the Sunset - 6:20

4. Vibration & Light Suite - 13:56
