It’s quite obvious we here, at Sly Vinyl, love us some Gold Robot Records. With the proficient use of a drum machine, minor vocal filtering, synth loops, and a succinct bridge (among other tools and effects), Graham Hill does a good job at capturing the listener’s ears with the A-Side “Releasing Me.” As much as I hate to say this, because it seems so clichĂ© and trite to write it, this 7″ (going off of the A-Side) seems to avoid any genre classification. AsÂ Gold Robot Records writes in its summary below, he combines elements of pop, electronica, and hip-hop. I would provide a link to the B-Side, but I can’t seem to find one. It’s a bit odd that there are still copies of this 7″ around, because this came out over six years ago now. At $4, you’re getting a great deal and snagging Roman Ruins’ debut. Listen to “Releasing Me” below via Soundcloud and see what you think of it. Cheers!
Roman Ruins is the brainchild of Graham Hill. His sound combines elements of indie pop, electro-shoegaze,and hip-hop. Draped in structure, you will most certainly count yourself among his legion of fans after landing a copy of the inaugural Gold Robot Records release.
