Ima Robot "Let's Talk Turkey"

I discovered Ima Robot through a Nine Inch Nails fan club forum board, believe it or not. Sadly, I think only 3 people replied to this guy's post raving about the band, but I can say my interest was piqued. It's not on there anymore, but there was a unique cover of "Wicked Game" posted. The snippets they had on their myspace account were so impressive I went out and bought the self titled album the next day and it has been on heavy rotation in my CD player ever since.

The band sorta has a punky-new-wavish-indie-sound. More specifically, Alex Ebert possesses clear, and yet endearingly, nasaly voice with a solid upper register that I find quite pleasing to listen to (I'm not sure why, but I do). They've also got catchy melodies and fun lyrics (check out the song "12=3"). These words from "Let's Talk Turkey" most definitely apply to me:

Hello, hello
Losing concentration
Losing motivation
Losing ground

Solo solo
Don't like moderation
Starved for conversation
Are you down

A reaction to some soft skin
What about
I've seen it here and there ...

Listen to:
"Let's Talk Turkey"

You can find more songs and their profile on their ImaRobot Myspace.

Go and buy the album. Seriously, it's totally worth it--if not for the funky Gondry-esque CD art alone.

They're really cool and I'd love to see them live sometime. Hey, you going to Tool in May?
