4.0 out of 5 stars Confident & Competent (8/10), 3 July 2009

This review is from: Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson (Audio CD)
If Grizzly Bear's recent Veckatimest was a meeting of Animal Collective complexity and Fleet Foxes close harmonies, then this well-endowed owner of names' album is the point at which that record meets Bright Eyes and Bon Iver. It is no surprise there is a similarity, what with Taylor of said Grizzly Bear providing production duties. No more so are these comparisons evident than with the harmonies and Oberst-aping of `Who's Laughing?'. And in response, no one. This is a very confident and competent debut, which houses all the above influence under the looming shadow of a certain Neil Young, and still has time to welcome a TV On The Radio-er contribution. There must be something in the water in Brooklyn, and my guess is that it is not legal. From its mumbling acoustic opening, trembling freak-folk wig outs à la Andrew Bird to its Crazy Horse guitar solos, this singer-songwriter has plenty to offer and, despite the banality of the phrase, will be one to watch.
