Biography

Raised By Robots is an indie rock band from San Francisco/Oakland that suckles lovingly on the teat of multitudinous influences - among them early 90s indie, soul, post punk, country, and hip hop - and ameliorates that disparate mash into a sonic reformation that Zeus himself would be proud of. RxR takes nods from certain acts - Why?, Okkervil River, Al Green, Johnny Cash, Thee More Shallows, Menomena, Jamie Lidell, Tapes N Tapes, Sly, The Flaming Lips, The Arcade Fire, DJ Shadow, Damon Albarn, The Beach Boys - but have created something wholly unique. This band also believes strongly in an energetic & charismatic live show, which it has brought to fans all over the bay area and up and down the west coast for the past two years.

In the fall of 2008 RxR recorded a small selection of songs in the front room of a San Francisco apartment, which they would release in May of 2009. Reflecting their new-found musical maturity and live prowess, “Disorganization Will Save Us All” is a giant musical leap for RxR, mixed by Eli Crews (Why?, Deerhoof) and mastered by Mike Wells (Why?, Son Lux, John Vanderslice, etc.). Perhaps best summed up by the second track ‘Dinner Pill’, the EP finds anthemic choruses amidst dark, atmospheric post-post-rock, pulling the listener through winding, unexpected song structures that offer pop rewards to those who hang on for the ride. Elsewhere, songs spread out over rhythmic pulses alone, stretched into skeletal rock exercises until climaxing with fits of guitar abandon.
