Psychedelic Pill – review by Rolling Stone

Neil Young and Crazy Horse Reveal Album Release Date, Tracklist
‘Psychedelic Pill’ to hit shelves on October 30

Neil Young and Crazy Horse have given Psychedelic Pill, their second album of 2012, an official release date of October 30th.

With a handful of tracks passing the 15-minute barrier, and opener “Driftin’ Back” clocking in at a whopping 27 minutes and 36 seconds, the followup to their folk covers record Americana will be available in double-CD and triple-LP formats. Check out the full tracklist below.

“It’s us jamming and having lots of fun,” Crazy Horse guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro told Rolling Stone earlier this summer. “I think that [former Crazy Horse producer] David Briggs would be proud of it . . . Once he was gone, I felt like we lost our compass a bit. We had the sound and we had the big machine, and we could play anything and play pretty good, but we weren’t putting any great records together. I mean, Broken Arrow was OK. It wasn’t like Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere or Rust Never Sleeps or Ragged Glory.”

Produced by Neil Young with John Hanlon and Mark Humphreys, Psychedelic Pill is the first album of original material by the full line-up of Neil Young and Crazy Horse since Broken Arrow in 1996 – though the band (minus Poncho) did back Young on his 2003 rock opera Greendale.
The band resumes their 2012 tour on October 3rd in Windsor, Ontario. It wraps up December 4th in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

Track list:
Disc One:
1) Driftin’ Back (27:36)
2) Psychedelic Pill (3:26)
3) Ramada Inn (16:49)
4) Born in Ontario (3:49)
Disc Two:
1) Twisted Road (3:28)
2) She’s Always Dancing (8:33)
3) For the Love of Man (4:13)
4) Walk Like a Giant (16:27)
Bonus Track:
5) Psychedelic Pill (Alternate Mix)

Psychedelic Pill – epic songs

from Uncut:

“At Uncut HQ, meanwhile, we’re busy finishing off the next issue to a soundtrack mostly of Psychedelic Pill, the new Neil Young and Crazy Horse album, as mentioned here last week, which is even more epic than anticipated, so much music on it that it will be released as a double CD and triple vinyl LP.

John has already written about two of the album’s extended jams, “Walk Like A Giant” and “Ramada Inn”, but we’ve also been totally enthralled by the 27 minutes of “Drifting Back”. For a full review, don’t miss next month’s issue.”

Psychedelic Pill

” NEW CRAZY HORSE ALBUM IN OCTOBER
August 24, 2012

Psychedelic Pill will be released in October. It was recorded right after Americana at Audio Casa Blanca. A double-CD and triple-vinyl will be released because of the lengths of many of the songs, some of which were previewed in Crazy Horse’s live performances earlier this month. In the spirit of Americana’s release, full length videos for each of the songs will be available and previewed. A recommended high resolution 24/192 full fidelity version of the album Psychedelic Pill will be released on Blu-ray and will include all the videos. The low resolution iTunes downloads will also be accompanied by videos. Thanks for listening.

…from Neil’s site.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s new LP Psychedelic Pill will hit store shelves sometime in October. According to an update on Young’s official website, “a double-CD and triple-vinyl will be released because of the lengths of many of the songs, some of which were previewed in Crazy Horse’s live performances earlier this month . . . A recommended high resolution 24/192 full fidelity version of the album Psychedelic Pill will be released on Blu-ray.” The group will also release videos for each of the songs.

Crazy Horse guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro told Rolling Stone about the new disc in June. “It’s us jamming and having lots of fun,” he said. “I think that [former Crazy Horse producer] David Briggs would be proud of it . . . Once he was gone, I felt like we lost our compass a bit. We had the sound and we had the big machine, and we could play anything and play pretty good, but we weren’t putting any great records together. I mean, Broken Arrow was OK. It wasn’t like Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere or Rust Never Sleeps or Ragged Glory.”

Earlier this month the group launched their first tour in more than eight years. The setlist features six brand new songs, including the 20-minute feedback-drenched epic “Walk Like A Giant.” “Neil came into the studio and he had that song,” Sampedro said earlier this month. “We played it one time and the next thing we know we’re doing overdubs. Then he played it for us. The playback just blew our minds. We had no idea we’d done something that big. I imagine it’s about Earth being destroyed by this giant, and we’re screening the planet for survivors and shit. I have all these images going through my head. It’s really crazy.”

The guitarist also spoke about the title track “Psychedelic Pill.” “That song began in the studio when Neil sat down at the piano and began playing chords,” Sampedro said. “Ralph [Molina] was on drums and he started this beat on the snare and wouldn’t stop for nearly an hour. We stood up and played it and realized it was a great song. We just haven’t performed it that great yet, but we’re getting more comfortable every night.”

Just three months ago Neil Young and Crazy Horse released the folk covers disc Americana. Surprisingly, they are only playing a single one of those songs, “Jesus’ Chariot,” during their live show this summer. “They just didn’t fit in,” Poncho said.

“Somehow they really sound good when we play them together, but when we play them in a set they just didn’t fit in. I told Neil that I thought it was a lot of fun playing them and they’re great songs, but our soul and our hearts aren’t in them.”

The band is on a break right now, but the tour resumes in late September and runs through early December. They have yet to announce exactly when in October the new LP will be released.
