Chris Robinson Brotherhood, May 20, Knitting Factory

Not a Crow right now

by

Chris Robinson (former frontman of the Black Crowes, who are on indefinite hiatus) is what he does. From his long hair, bushy beard and affinity for aviator sunglasses, to his lanky frame often draped in vintage pieces and denim, to his marriage to--and subsequent divorce from--a gorgeous actress 12 years his junior, Robinson oozes rockstar.

Robinson's new project, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood (founded in 2011), seems to suit him to a tee.

CRB's latest release, Phosphorescent Harvest (Silver Arrow Records, April 2014), exemplifies the band's ability to wrap up throwback-psychedelic/bluesy-rootsy rock and well-crafted lyrics in a new kind of package and deliver a body of work that is steeped in experimentation and, of course, rock 'n' roll.
