Song of the Week: "Wanting and Waiting"


The Brothers Robinson (Chris & Rich) are back, albeit 11 years after releasing a double live album, Wiser for the Time (2013), and taking no effin' prisoners. These are real musicians playing real instruments with no auto-tuned vocals. "Wanting and Waiting" off of Happiness Bastards (2024) is brimming with classic Crowes' hard rock swagger with killer guitar hooks and soulful background vocals. They're missing the "thump" of original founding band member drummer Steve Gorman being left out in the cold. It's too bad; my only complaint about the song's arrangement is that they miss his power and energy. (If you've not read Mr. Gorman's memoir, do so immediately.) On tour now; check out dates here.
