Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson first caught my ear back in 08′ with the release of his self-title debut album recorded and produced by both Kyp Malone and Grizzly Bear. Now the Brooklyn crooner is set to release his new LP “Summer of Fear” on Oct. 20, off Saddle Creek Records.
“Summer of Fear” is what happened six months later, as life alternated between darkness and light, and spare bedroom songs blossomed into speaker-popping arrangements of sweeping strings, honking horns, and chords that cut so deeply they’re bound to leave a mark. A biting cross-section of Petty and Dylan, Pavement and Fleetwood Mac, delivering a eulogy to yesterday and the curtain-drawing promise of another day. Not just any day, either; a day Robinson’s determined to seize on an international stage, with a battered guitar by his side and a four-alarm fire in his chest.
