"From Our Living Room To Yours 11: Telepods, Concrete Robot, Good Talk"

A mostly solo studio project, Concrete Robot has Andy Castro functioning as frontman and backing band all in one, but you wouldn’t know it on a track like “Shoegazer,” with its Wrecking Crew-approved drum opening and tight instrumentation. The mumbly vocals and playful, power poppy guitar hearken back to indie at the start of the ’00s, though Castro has a clearer love of pop song craft than most blog rock bands ever did. The “Shoegazer” title itself is also a bit of a misnomer, since that has less to do with walls of sound and a heavy emphasis on delay than with actual shoegazing– it’s actually a song urging someone to not look down so much. Castro also enlisted the aid of Erik Wofford of Black Angels and White Denim fame for the production of “Shoegazer” and it shows in how full bodied the recording is. The drums pack quite a punch and the tone on the guitar is nothing short of luxurious. Castro could stand to get a little more confident on the mic, as his vocals don’t pack quite the same punch just yet, but “Shoegazer” nonetheless provides a tantalizing glimpse at what may soon be one of Austin’s best songwriters. - Ovrld Austin Music First
