Coming out of Brooklyn, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson creates his own brand of multi-instrumentational, introspective, and very personal songs. With vocals that feel warm and scratchy like wool, Robinson sings about one tulmutuous summer on his second release, The Summer of Fear, out on Saddle Creek. His lyrics denote an even more tumultuous life, dealing with alcoholic hazes, homelessness, and shyness just to name a few.
With the collaboration of talented individuals and good friends such as Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio, and Grizzly Bear‘s Christopher Bear and Chris Taylor, he’s harnessed a talent that has been brewing inside since he could walk. Live vicariously through him, or maybe witness some pinata abuse at the Knitting Factory Friday at 1pm for CMJ Music and Film Festival.
