ROBBERS ON HIGH STREET (or YES, THEY SPORT A CONTRACT WITH AN RIAA LABEL BUT THEY’RE NOT OVERHYPED OR UNDERQUALIFIED

Posted: June 15, 2007 by dillion in Uncategorized

New York City’s fantastic indie power trio Robbers On High Street will release their new album, Grand Animals, on July 24th. I love the band and written positively of them in the past. So why am I sad? Because they’ve decided to put it on New Line Records, who are part of the RIAA. Very sad. I’m making an exception to my non-RIAA-only policy to give them a mention, though, because
the album is really great. Some of it you may have heard before on EPs, but it doesn’t sound like a bunch of thrown-together tunes. The album is cohesive, and the sound is great.

Congrats, boys. I hope the media machine doesn’t eat you up and swallow your sound.

Crown Victoria.
