Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson

Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson, based on name alone, may sound like a president on first offing, but give his eponymous, debut album a spin and you'll soon realise a more relevant career has presented itself for this Brooklyn bard.


Recorded in an intensive few days, with predominantly live takes, this is modern music made the old-fashioned way: take ten ragged, soulful and completely compelling hymns for tough times, throw into the mix an impressive array of backing musicians (Kyp Malone of TV On The Radio; Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear), and just record what happens… In this case, it’s one of 2009’s most intense, beautiful listens; ‘Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson’ is indeed a classic offering.
