My Favorite – Robot Glass to the End
The Canadian outfit behind the My Favorite Robot label turn to their own creative talents for the next EP, namely a tidy two tracker entitled ‘Glass to the End’.
Made up of Jared Simms, James Teej and Voytek Korab, My Favorite Robot have established themselves as artful electronic craftsmen with a penchant for deep and moody synth tracks that feature stirring vocals and engaging grooves. This EP will actually be their first for a long while following efforts on Crosstown Rebels, No.19 Music and Life and Death.
Opener ‘Magneto’ is a darkly melodic gem from the Robot trio, with Voytek’s pained vocals low in the mix and reflective but sad synths stretching out all around. The beats grow increasingly prominent and eventually sound like the sort of epic fair that Sasha would drop in one of his emotive club sets.
The title track is then a quicker and slicker track with bursts of horn, blurts of synth and arpeggiated melodies all making for an urgent and dystopian vibe. Futuristic and evocative, this is another well crafted and properly structured song that really sets on fire when Voytek’s vocal cries leap out of the mix at the mid point.
Dramatic and theatrical in truly unique ways, My Favorite Robot really do have their own unique sound, as this EP shows once more.
