new Ima Robot

I first heard of Ima Robot a few years ago because i heard a couple of the guys were in Beck's band (like their bassist Justin who has worked with tons of people.) I thought their album was alright (Black Jetta's was totally awesome), it was fun anyway. I also ended up seeing them live with Junior Senior at one point. All of Ima Robot's equipment cases said Oleander on them (Oleander is a crappy alternative rock band that is probably no longer doing anything.) Ima Robot was really fun live (not as fun as Junior Senior), but the only thing I can remember about their performance was their singer. He came out wearing this odd fitting yellow tank top and kept grabbing at the ceiling and wandering about. Also, as soon as he came out this horrible smell filled the air and as soon as he left it was gone, so the guy smelled awful.

Ima Robot seemed to drop off the radar for awhile, but now they're working on a new album that's going to come out this year. Here's some demos from their myspace.

No Control (demo)

Yes, quite the B-Side. It's okay.

For the record, IMA Robot's album is electrifying. This is coming from an entire robotics team, so you'd do well to take note of it.

Thanks for the links.
