Young and Crazy Horse announce another CD

Tuesday, September 11, 2012 – On the heels of their well-received summer release "Americana," Neil Young & Crazy Horse will release "Psychedelic Pill" on Oct. 30.

Produced by Young with John Hanlon and Mark Humphreys, "Psychedelic Pill" was recorded right after " Americana" at Audio Casablanca and features eight tracks, plus a bonus track.

Due to the lengths of many of the songs (the lead-off track clocks in at 27:36 with two other songs more than 16 minutes), some of which were previewed during Crazy Horse's live performances in August, the CD will be released as a double-CD and as a triple-LP vinyl edition. Full-length videos for each of the songs will be available for viewing and purchase. A high-resolution 24/192 full-fidelity version will be released on Blu-ray and will include all the videos.

Crazy Horse, which is Young, Billy Talbot, Ralph Molina, and Poncho Sampredo, will hit the road for a North American tour beginning Oct. 1 and continue for two months.

Young's annual Bridge School benefit will take place on Oct. 20-21 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Cal with Neil Young & Crazy Horse and label mates The Flaming Lips and Gary Clark Jr., as well as Jack White and Guns N' Roses.

CD reviews for Neil Young

Americana CD review - Americana
It is understandable that fans might anticipate a stripped-down, acoustic guitar-driven affair with plenty of harmonica when they learn that Neil Young's new album is largely a collection of traditional American folk songs.

Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Nelson shows he's alive and well – After a recent tour stop health scare, where he ended a concert early in Salt Lake City, Willie Nelson appeared to be healthy and in fine spirits. Although he changes up the order from night to night, Nelson performed many of the same songs he always plays live. And while his vocal range shows signs of deterioration - he more talks his songs than sings... »»»
Concert Review: Crowell overcomes The Show That Almost Wasn't – In the memory of those in attendance, it will go down as The Show That Almost Wasn't. The King of Americana, surprisingly strong of voice although physically ragged, Rodney Crowell took to the stage about 90 minutes later than scheduled, and the audience members who persevered were treated to a celebration of song and spirit.... »»»

Margo Price's surprise EP, "Weakness," is a pleasant surprise, indeed. It may be concise, but it's packed tightly with good stuff. The project's title cut is a bit confessional and finds Price admitting, "Sometimes my weakness is stronger than me." Price sings it like a down home cowgirl, over a toe-tapping beat. »»»
