Electro is the bastard love child of American hip-hop and European new wave. As such, it is both gritty and posh. My Favorite Robot hail from Toronto, which is something of an American-European love child in its own way, and they are as fluent in electro as fellow Canadians like Junior Boys are in neo-italo – which is to say, very.
On September 19, festival circuit favorites My Favorite Robot release their new album Atomic Age on Art Department's No.19 label. It is a laser sharp rendition of dark and dreamy electro touched with flashes of acid house. The beats rock the right spots, the synths throb and squelch on point, and indie-pop melodies polish the retro vibe to a futuristic gleam that is both elegant and slightly sinister.
Check the exclusive VIBE premiere of their "Space Capsule" video for a taste.
