The much lauded My Favorite Robot join forces with No.19 Music for the release of their stunning new artist album, Atomic Age venturing deep into the realms of ethereal, vocal new electronic music and beyond as only they know how…
The Toronto based trio, My Favorite Robot has risen through the musical ranks since their 2009 debut, to become one of the hottest production outfits around. The pairing of James Teej, Jared Simms and Voytek Korab seems to be a match made in heaven with the MFR team running a highly successful label, touring the world with label showcases at the likes of BPM, WMC & Sonar and creating stunning original music and remixes for labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Visionquest, their own My Favorite Robot Records and No.19 Music.
Atomic Age's opening cut ‘The Circus’ sets the scene with its charged vocal performance rising through a sea of synth driven electronic dance music. From here there is a series of dark edged, yet highly engaging vocal cuts including ‘Here Tonight’, the spacey ‘Ride’ and the outstanding recent single ‘Looking for Frost’. Tracks such as ‘Home’ draw on a distinct 80’s electro feel, while the excellently titled ‘Centreofattentionaut’ cuts a deeper, hypnotic channel. The acidic stylings of title track ‘ Atomic Age’ reconnect the listener with the Robots’ acid house music credentials while ‘Sharpest Tongue’ delivers a classic, down tempo electro shuffler with its layered vocals and discordant synths. Finally the full eight minutes of ‘The War to End All Wars’ that closes the album with style.
My Favorite Robot have walked a distinctly unique path over the past few years, building a sound that fuses elements from pop’s dark electro past with an intense forward stare into the future. Check out the album preview on the Soundcloud stream below. Tour dates following.
