MP3: Heavy Heart from Robotique Majestique (2008)

Live, this band is incredible. The music doesn’t sound like it comes from instruments; the singing doesn’t sound like it comes from humans. The third member of the band is a severely unrecognized lighting designer. The effects and obnoxious smoke, strobes, and lasers raised the caliber of this very fun and interesting set into one of the best live musical acts you’ll experience.

“It started underneath this tent, and ended in outer space.”

This band absolutely kicked my ass at Bonnaroo this year. Their tent must have looked like UFO in the middle of a Tennessee corn field to any airline passengers flying overhead, and was impossible to ignore from anywhere in Centeroo.

I walked in hypnotized by the energy from this tent. I’ve never heard anything like this; I simultaneously wanted to dance, freak out and run away scared. They proceeded to kick my ass, stab me repeatedly in the kidney, and kick me in the ribs for 90 minutes. One of the band members danced in the lasers, sang (or yelped?), played guitar. Another, in a cape, fiddled with keyboards and FX machines. The short video clips below (with insanely bad audio) will give you an idea.

This went on for an hour and a half completely choreographed to the music, never repetitive.

Completely mind blowing.

At the 9:30 Club, expect an insane show with a sold out crowd and more glowsticks than you’ve seen since that one sad rave you went to in college. You’ll walk out feeling like all of your senses have just been assaulted, and you’ll like it.

    It’s abaout time these guys get out here and out of TX. I heard them a few years ago and just one song rocked my world. Have heard very little since. Getting goosebumps all over again. People should check them out…and love them…and bring them back…again.
