we love: Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson

"Find that thing you really need..."
Intern Hunter's been digging on the latest release by Brooklyn drunk (not a diss, listen to the record) Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson and passed this little note along to me the other day.
I just got an advance release of the debut album by the multiple-named tunesmith (ahem, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson , above left), and I'm just gonna lay it out there: this is the best thing I've heard in a long, long time. With all due respect to our friends The Explorers Club and El Guincho, this will be the soundtrack to my summer. The album meshes classically constructed folk tunes with some beautiful experimental instrumentation, courtesy of fellow Brooklynites Chris Taylor and Chris Bear (of Grizzly Bear), and also features appearances by Kyp Malone of TVOTR and Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear. Check it out on Say Hey Records, July 1st... you won't be disappointed.

Hunter's right, this is a darn good record. But, Hunter, if this is your album of the summer, then you're gonna have one depressing ass July. Throw on some Donna Summer "I Feel Love" and lighten up kid.
