L.A. band The Record Company first connected over a John Lee Hooker album called Hooker N' Heat, on which the legendary boogie bluesman collaborated with Canned Heat.
The guitar-bass-drums trio's debut album is called Give It Back To You. Hear the band perform songs from the record in the audio segment above, and get a look inside the studio in the performance video of "Off The Ground" below.
Being in a band feels a lot like being in a relationship: Making music with another person borders on spiritual, and is one of the most intimate experiences you can share with another individual. That's precisely why the long-awaited reunion of mid-'70s-era Santana works so well on record: These musicians' chemistry is palpable, and it flows through Santana IV, their new album together.
