Robyn Hitchcock – Robyn Hitchcock – 2017 Vinyl LP – Yep Roc Records
I will have your babies if you buy this record. Robyn is a god you know – like you, or Syd or Bob Dylan or Joseph Conrad.
Robyn Hitchcock is the follow up to 2014’s critically acclaimed The Man Upstairs. The new record was recorded in Nashville, Robyn’s new home base in the US, and was produced by Robyn and Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs). This is the first time Robyn has made a full band album in the studio since 2008 and the record features a lot of key players, including Gillian Welch, Emma Swift, Pat Sansone (Wilco, The Autumn Defense) and Grant-Lee Phillips. The psych-rock influence is a callback to his days with The Soft Boys and his early solo albums
