Homespun: Beth Bombara and the Robotic Foundation, self-titled EP

Posted By on Thu, Apr 16, 2009 at 10:00 AM

In this week's paper, Christian Schaeffer reviews Beth Bombara and the Robotic Foundation's self-titled EP. He had this to say:

Last year, singer-songwriter Beth Bombara released Abandon Ship, a tidy EP of mostly acoustic songs that paired understated sonics with her sweet, distinct voice. She returns with another six-song serving, this time recorded with her backing band, Robotic Foundation, which is comprised of Theodore multi-instrumentalist JJ Hamon on bass and his brother Kit on drums. (Let us pause to consider the poetic justice of a drummer named Kit.) With the help of producer Dan Mehrman, the trio emits a well-tempered slurry of electric energy, trigger-happy percussion and echoing atmospherics, which gives Bombara something substantive to push against.

 Check out the rest here! And enjoy an MP3 below.
