Chris Robinson Brotherhood - Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel Vinyl LP
Chris Robinson Brotherhood Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel Vinyl LP
The Chris Robinson Brotherhood return in July 2016 with their fourth studio album, Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel. The band relocated to northern California for the sessions, recording on the side of a mountain overlooking the foggy Pacific Ocean and channeling the natural majesty of their surroundings into the album's eight sprawling tracks. Having spent the prior two years touring relentlessly, the CRB were road-tested and in peak form to capture their kinetic chemistry and immersive sound, which Uncut Magazine called, "...a celebration of how American musical traditions can be at once honored and psychedelically expanded."
When the Chris Robinson Brotherhood entered the studio to begin recording the album, no one knew just what to expect. These would be the band's first recordings with new drummer Tony Leone (Ollabelle, Levon Helm) and their first time producing themselves. Robinson purposely left as much open-ended as possible.
Rather than coming into the studio with a collection of finished songs as he had in the past, he would present the group with sketches – a verse and melody here, a chorus and chord progression there – and let the band follow its collective muse to bring the music to life. They'd lean into the improvisational nature that makes their live shows such enthralling spectacles and thrive on the unexpected.
Some of Robinson's finest writing to date arrives in the album's final minutes, with the country-soul, gospel-tinged closer "California Hymn," which finds him singing "Glory glory hallelujah / It's time to spread the news / Though my good words may sound profane to some."
