[SOUNDCLOUD] My Favorite Robot ‘Atomic Age’ Mini-Mix (Preview) – Listen Now!
The Toronto based trio My Favorite Robot has risen through the musical ranks since their 2009 debut to become one of the most highly respected 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 The BPM Festival, Winter Music Conference and Sonar Festival, and creating stunning original music and remixes for labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Visionquest, their own My Favorite Robot Records and of course, No.19 Music. The Robot’s connection to No.19 Music stretches back to the formative days for both, when a shared office in Toronto provided the base for Jonny White and the No.19 crew as well as My Favorite Robot. Now, with both camps dominating the world stage it makes for the most natural of partnerships for the new My Favorite Robot album to find a home with the good folks at No.19.
‘Atomic Age’ is a beautifully crafted album that opens the doors on the inner sound of My Favorite Robot. Without a doubt it takes influences from the many dancefloors that the trio have rocked over the past few years, but at its core this is a heartfelt and musical album that showcases the songwriting and performing talents of the three core members. Opening cut “The Circus,” sets the scene with its emotionally charged vocal performance rising through a sea of synth driven electronica. 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, whilst 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 credentials whilst “Sharpest Tongue” delivers a classic, down tempo electro shuffler with its layered vocals and discordant synths. Finally we have the full eight minutes of “The War to End All Wars” that closes the album with style and leaves you wishing there was more.
‘Atomic Age’ will be released on September 17, with an official album release party in New York at Highline Ballroom on September 20. They will continue to celebrate with worldwide album tour dates throughout North America and Europe, featuring stops in Toronto, Montreal, Paris, Barcelona and London. 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. ‘Atomic Age’ is a perfect reflection of that sound and a testament to abilities of the ever-inspiring Robot trio, enjoy!
