On Oct. 18, rock/blues ensemble The Magpie Salute, helmed by guitarist Rich Robinson of the Black Crowes, released a new album, High Water II — as previewed with the rousing “Gimme Something”:

As the number in its title suggests, High Water II is the second full-length from the band, following its 2018 debut album.

‘High Water II’ picks up where the band’s studio debut left off, much of the album was written during those early recordings at Dark Horse Studios in Nashville which is why the album feels like a perfect continuation of its predecessor. Talking about the flow between the two albums Robinson explains; “Both records are part of a collective journey. I chose the sequence specifically for each record. I wanted ‘High Water l’ to introduce us to the world and the world to us. With ‘High Water ll,’ I wanted to get a little deeper. To take people places they may not have expected to go.”

This is especially high quality blues/rock from a band of seasoned veterans, and it makes for an engaging listen throughout its 12 tracks.

The Magpie Salute’s new album comes at an intriguing time, too, as rumors are spreading that the Black Crowes may reconvene for a reunion in honor of their 30th anniversary — which would be noteworthy, given the longstanding issues between Rich Robinson and his brother, Chris Robinson, a relationship that spelled the end of the band previously.
