This week's contender for the "this year's Bon Iver" award is a mixed-race singer-songwriter from Brooklyn whose self-titled debut album shuffles from dark Neil Young-ish rock-outs to strung-out Bright Eyes-like campfire singalongs. Robinson has already attracted praise from Kyp (TV on the Radio) Malone while a couple of Grizzly Bears help out musically. There are tunes here catchier than his name and this fine, if at times disturbing record singles Robinson out as one to watch.
