We Can Do Anything

Jump to “More items of this artist”

Das neunte Studioalbum "We Can Do Anything" des legendären US-Trios Violent Femmes erscheint nach einer Pause von 15 Jahren. Man kann mit Fug und Recht behaupten: Violent Femmes haben nach wie vor Spaß an ihrer wilden Mischung aus ungestümen Folk, minimalistischem Punk, emotionalem Blues und Hinterland-Rock'n'Roll. Produziert wurde "We Can Do Anything" von Jeff Hamillton, dem langjährigen Mitglied der Horns Of Dilemma, der multiinstrumentalen Backing Band. Der Mix stammt von keinem Geringeren als John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Dinosaur, Jr.). Aufgenommen wurde das Album in diversen Studios während ihrer letztjährigen Tour mit den Barenaked Ladies, deren Keyboarder Kevin nicht nur das Albumcover von "We Can Do Anything" gestaltete, sondern auch als Gast zu hören ist. "We've always done what we wanted and how we wanted," meint Gordon Gano "Fundamentally there's no difference from then until now. It's a natural continuation."


Violent Femmes' ninth studio album and first full-length collection in more than 15 years, WE CAN DO ANYTHING is among the most provocative and playful in the legendary trio's remarkable canon. As the album's title makes plain, the band - singer/songwriter/guitarist Gordon Gano, bassist Brian Ritchie, and drummer Brian Viglione - remains as intrepid and fearless as ever before, traversing genre and emotion via their immediately identifiable, still utterly idiosyncratic, mash of rambunctious folk, minimalist punk, cubist blues, cosmic jazz, and backwoods rock 'n' roll. Produced by Jeff Hamilton - a longtime member of the Horns of Dilemma, Violent Femmes' ever-evolving cabal of multi-instrumentalist backing musicians - and mixed by the legendary John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Dinosaur, Jr.), WE CAN DO ANYTHING was recorded in studios in Brooklyn, Nashville, Los Angeles, Milwaukee and Denver, while on tour during the summer of 2015. The album's cover image was drawn by Barenaked Ladies' Kevin Hearn, who also contributed accordion, guitar, keyboards, and backing vocals on several recordings.
