Albums Of The Week: Neil Young & Crazy Horse | Barn

The eternally mercurial singer-songwriter & his long-serving band of brothers turn down the noise and turn up the nostalgia on this set of rootsy, reflective folk-rock.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s new album Barn — their 14th release together and Young’s 41st studio release — features 10 new songs that capture the raw, idiosyncratic rock ’n’ roll spirit and lyrical beauty that epitomize a classic NY/CH collaboration.

Recording in their unique, spontaneous way during the summer under a full moon and off the grid in a restored 19th century barn high up in the Rockies, the Horse were right at home — and the album’s stunning love songs, reflective ballads and powerhouse rockers reflect this with their laid-back moods and grounded warmth.

The current lineup of Crazy Horse includes Ralph Molina on drums, Billy Talbot on electric bass and multi-instrumentalist Nils Lofgren, a founding member who also played on Tonight’s The Night, After The Gold Rush and Trans. Barn was produced by The Volume DealersNeil Young and Niko Bolas. There’s also a film of the same name, which captures this legendary band in their element — the easy humor, the brotherhood, the humanity and of course, the music. A Blu-ray of the film directed by Daryl Hannah will be available as a stand-alone release.”
