Review: Vast Robot Armies – Dinner Music

Road 15 was always a good drive in the Camaro. A few rough patches of bad Tarmac, yes, but it was a good drive. The zippiest way from town to Emerald Quays, where the pier shined at night like a frantic kaleidoscope. Those were the days. Us four, the “Four Jays”, as our Phys. Ed. teacher, Mr. Torkmargh used to call us. One stop at … Continue reading Review: Vast Robot Armies – Dinner Music

Stream: Vast Robot Armies – Cruel Elephant

We are delighted to have an exclusive stream of ‘Cruel Elephant’, a rocking track from the newest Vast Robot Armies album, Dinner Music.   Here are a few words from Jason Thomson: I have a long standing fear that after each album I will run out of song ideas. So I tend to pressure myself to write something new within a week of releasing an … Continue reading Stream: Vast Robot Armies – Cruel Elephant

The Making of Dinner Music – Studio Diaries #4

-The Second Rehearsal- I had finally scored a bed. At this point I had shifted to the center room, and ended up managing to stake a claim to that room for a majority of the sessions. Joe was on the couch that morning. I tried not to wake him as I stumbled out of the bedroom into the kitchen/living room he slept in. I went … Continue reading The Making of Dinner Music – Studio Diaries #4

Chapter 3:  The First Rehearsal On the 3rd morning we all awoke very early. We had to drive Lauren to the train station so she could go back back home to KCMO. The Chicago train station wasn’t too far from out place, so we thought as an act of solidarity we’d all go and see her off. The train was departing at 7.30 am. So … Continue reading Making Dinner Music: Studio Diaries #3

Chapter 2: Darts and Tacos It hadn’t quite sunk in yet. I was sitting on the couch of our AirBnB with Joe, watching episode 1 of Vice Principals (during the sessions, this show and Stranger Things became our decompression shows after days in the studio). It didn’t quite feel real to me at this point. I was almost surprised to see them all the next … Continue reading Making Dinner Music: Studio Diaries #2

Chapter #1 – Re: Grouping *Author’s Note – The recording of this album took place during July 16th – 30th. As a result of that, my tense during these missives will be all over the place. Sorry. If you’ve ever been in a band or partaken in a creative endeavour (doesn’t have to be making a record) with a group of people, you will understand … Continue reading Making Dinner Music: Studio Diaries #1

The Great Promo Hunt – Best of 2015

2015. We wave goodbye to this year and just like any other before (and after), there were high and lows. This Shithole of a Website (TM) was supposed to close and we are still here, wondering what it all means and when is it really time to call it quits. It’ll be a whimper, not a bang, but that’s a discussion for another day. In … Continue reading The Great Promo Hunt – Best of 2015

Review: Vast Robot Armies – Little Creatures

A few years ago, Goodnight Myopia landed on my lap. It was a spacey and overtly catchy one man army effort. It also felt like staggering back home after a particularly bad day: emotions are raw, the sun has gone back to its den far too fast and you are seeing red, almost blinded by the dark ocher lampposts guiding you home. Whatever shortcomings Goodnight … Continue reading Review: Vast Robot Armies – Little Creatures
