Gatefold jacket / 180 gram translucent blue vinyl!


Punkrock, Psychedelic, Power-Pop, Country – kaum eine Stilrichtung haben die Rocker aus Atlanta seit ihrer Gründung 1985 ausgelassen; der kurze Flirt mit dem Hardrock auf „Fly Me Courageous“  (1991) begleitete zumindest ihren kommerziellen Höhenflug. Seitdem hat sich der Vierer um Frontmann Kevn Kinney konsequent in den Underground zurückgezogen und an einem Ruf als hart arbeitende, erstklassige Live-Band gebastelt.  Folgerichtig reflektieren die Texte von bodenständig rockenden Liedern wie „Free Ain’t Free“ oder „I Used To Live Around Here“ auf ihrer ersten Platte seit 2009 das Leben auf der Straße und die schwierigen Zeiten in ihrer Heimat, wobei sich Kinney als eloquenter und kritischer Beobachter des American Way of Life erweist. Die musikalische Rückbesinnung auf ihre Wurzeln ist da fast zwingend. Zwar reicht Live The Love Beautiful nicht an das exzellente Mystery Road heran, aber das fast komplett live im Studio aufgenommene Rock’n’Roll-Manifest gefällt mit einem Kontrastprogramm aus grobschlächtigen Gitarren und subtiler Orgel-Grundierung wie im Pop-Song „What’s Wrong With Being Happy“ oder dem Roots-Rocker „Step By Step“. In „Ian Mc Lagan“ setzt Kinney überdies dem von ihn verehrten Faces-Keyboarder ein Denkmal. Schöne Geste. 

Markus Baro/ROCKS – 8/10 Punkten



“A dynamic and diverse Americana excursion with touches of garage and psychedelic rock, folk and country.”

Billboard

 


 

Produced by Aaron Lee Tasjan, the new record is an anthemic blast of full-spectrum rock & roll, with frontman Kevn Kinney singing about the troubled times of modern-day America. Drivin N Cryin is a rock ‘n’ roll institution. From their days as MTV-approved radio stars to their rebirth as DIY icons of the American underground, they’ve spent three and a half decades building a legacy grounded in sharp songwriting, southern stomp, and loud, life-affirming shows.

 

Trends have come and gone. Bandmates have done the same. But Drivin N Cryin continues to hit the stage night after night, guitars in hand, amplifiers on full blast, delivering the soundtrack to a self-made rock & roll saga that’s ever-unfolding.

 

That saga reaches a new high-water mark with Live the Love Beautiful, the band’s first full-length album since their 2009 working-class rock opera, Whatever Happened to the Great American Bubble Factory.

 

Produced by Aaron Lee Tasjan, the new record is an anthemic blast of full-spectrum rock & roll, with frontman Kevn Kinney singing about the troubled times of modern-day America; the trials and triumphs of an adulthood logged on the road; the benefits of appreciating the small things in life; and even the legacy of the Faces’ late keyboardist, Ian McLagan.

 

Together, these 11 songs connect the dots between the sounds that have shaped Drivin N Cryin’s career since the beginning, mixing together the jangle of folk music, the weirdo textures of 1960s psychedelia, the punky slash-and-burn of old-school rock & roll, and the sweep of Kinney’s southern ballads.

 

“Aaron Lee Tasjan knows me as well as I know myself,” says Kinney, whose voice — a mix of southern snarl, folksy croon, and rock-club rasp — remains just as signature to DNC’s sound as their larger-than-life guitar riffs. “He knows what people are expecting from us, and he knows what we’re missing. I love his songwriting, his voice, the way he makes records… and I wanted him to make our record in whatever way he thought best.”
