CD Review: The Chris Robinson Brotherhood Keep Rolling Out Albums With New "Barefoot In The Head"

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood continue to roll out quality music at a steady pace. Just last year they released a full-length studio album, a follow-up studio EP and earlier this year they released a new double-live album. They continue the trend with their brand new studio album titled "Barefoot In The Head." It was released on July 21st through Silver Arrow Records and features 10-tracks that keep the music down-to-earth with their signature rootsy, jamband sound.
 
The new album begins with a shuffle rhythm, funky bass groove and some outstanding blues guitar riffs that lead the way for singer Chris Robinson's iconic vocals on the opener "Behold The Seer." The CRB slow down for the roots ballad "She Shares My Blanket," before Robinson spills out lyrics like a hip-hop artist during the story of "Hark The Herald Hermit Speaks." The band showcase their jazzier side on the New Orleans flavor of "Blue Star Woman," then travel out to the country for the genuine acoustic-based songs "High Is Not The Top" and "If You Had A Heart To Break." They finish their new album with the gentle acoustic strumming of "Glow" and the seventies slow rock vibe of "Good To Know."
 
The Chris Robinson Brotherhood are currently in the midst of their U.S. tour which runs until the end of the year. For a complete list of live shows and to find out more about their new studio album "Barefoot In The Head," please visit chrisrobinsonbrotherhood.com.
