Description

Beth Bombara & the Robotic Foundation on CD

"Beth Bombara & the Robotic Foundation is....a well-tempered slurry of electric energy, trigger-happy percussion and echoing atmospherics." "Stutter-step beats and reverberating guitar notes make 'Conversation' sound like a Modest Mouse 45 slowed down to 33 1/3." "Her singing and songwriting is comforting and confident (although not overpowering), but these recordings help take her out of the coffeehouse and into rock & roll's noisy, clangorous realm." -The Riverfront Times 'The case for Bombara's artistic growth and creative expansion is evidenced by the staying power of the six songs that constitute what you could call it an EP. That classification doesn't do Robotic Foundation justice. These songs feel like a playlist that selfishly mines your favorites from a great full-length, totally robbing the artist of her creative control. The crime of being finicky and pinching only the best bits (skipping dinner and going straight to dessert) is indeed a guilty pleasure. In this case, the pleasure's completely innocent, like PB & J's made with that sliced bread with no crust so kids the world 'round can munch unfettered. Where her 2007 release Abandon Ship flowed like silica in an hourglass's uppermost to it's base, ...and the Robotic Foundation creaks, coils and then springs at forward (in the span of one song), and then, having traveled to new ground, cools off and recoils with even more tension than before, poised for the next expansion. It's kinetic, it's engrossing, but above all it's pure. The addition of JJ and Kit Hamon (on bass and drums, respectively) has given Bombara's songs heft, and a propulsive force that's anything but robotic. As a band, the chemistry is there, and it's downright impressive.' [A] -Willie E. Smith, Playback: STL A note from Beth: The cases for this CD are made from 100% recycled paperboard. A series of 7 stamps were designed by a friend, that make up the artwork on the case. Yes, I stamped them myself, with the help of some friends. Hand packaged with love. Enjoy!
