"Video Premiere: Indigenous Robot Take You To Space With "One World""

Denver’s Indigenous Robot are not your run-of-the-mill “out there” sort of band. Instead, they’re more a culmination of "out there" ideals ranging from hints of indie legends The Flaming Lips to psychedelic rock legends The Doors. Even better, they just released a video that sums up their artistry for their latest song “One World.” - Bolder Beat

"Trip Out to Indigenous Robot’s “Revolting”"

Rewind AND fast forward. Indigenous Robot is a trip! Old school psych rock elements of The Doors, Black Sabbath, and Jefferson Airplane splash into a pot of The Flaming Lips and The White Stripes, making an intoxicating concoction taking us to a new, modern level of instrumentally driven psychedelic rock n roll.

Indigenous Robot “Revolting” is the band’s most recent release, dropping late 2014. Since the release, the Denver based outfit have been slamming the road all along the West Coast, Canada, and even hit up SXSW 2015. You can see why this band is making waves, as they are introducing young music fans to a style of rock that is too often put out of mind.

As I take this musical journey. tracks that really stick out for me on this EP are “Like A Mouse” and “People Change”. Lyrically, Indigenous Robot is sadly poetic and seems to focus on the mindlessness of the world and the despair within that. Tempo changes throughout certain songs take us on a ride and aid the emotion of the lyrics nicely. “People Change” seems to be a defining song for the band, encompassing a good definition of what this band is about. I’m a big fan of the organ riffs and experimental guitar solos.

Check out Indigenous Robot on Facebook, and purchase their latest “Revolting” from BandCamp.

"Indigenous Robot"

A little goes a long way when it comes to psych-rock. This can be a hard lesson for a lot of bands to learn. When the Sex Pistols came around to bring music back to basics, they were reacting to the bloat of bands like Pink Floyd, who had taken psych-rock to its breaking point, and then fallen off a cliff into the howling void of pretension. Still, the lessons that '70s psych bands taught us were not in vain, and some restraint applied to the right blend of mind-melting antics can be very effective. Enter Indigenous Robot, who cram the stomping menace of Black Sabbath and the masculine poetry of the Doors into something resembling Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Psychedelia still works, as shown in Indigenous Robots' in-and-out brevity, which allows them to pack a considerable amount of punch into three minutes or less. - Northwest Military

"Indigenous Robot- Revolting"

Indigenous Robot, like the Energizer Bunny, just keeps on going. With a plethora of time on tour this year, it is a wonder they have found the time to drop their new album Revolting, but they have. With the modern rock flavors familiar to The White Stripes and psychedelic elements more along the lines of The Flaming Lips, the album is truly unique. Denver is overrun with indie and garage style rock, but no one does it quite like these guys, and their patience and maturity is present throughout the record. They never seem to be rushing, utilizing a sort of hard-hitting mellowness to convey emotion through soft-spoken lyrics.

Be careful with this record- it will glue you to the couch with the songs on repeat and your mind lost in the music- just like a good Indica.

"Turbo Fruits and Indigenous Robot rock Moe's like a garage."

If you go
What: Turbo Fruits with Indigenous Robot
When: 9 p.m. Saturday
Where: Moe's Barbecue (South), 3295 S. Broadway, Denver, 303-781-0412
Cost: $8-$10

A brand new Denver band called Indigenous Robot will open for Turbo Fruits at Moe's Barbecue this Saturday, warming up the audience with a different brand of garage rock.

The trio -- Elyse Elam on keys, Kyle South on guitar and vocals, and Ryan Longenecker on drums -- bring a psychedelic, funky sound to garage rock with influences like Grand Funk Railroad, The Doors and Jimi Hendrix.

“I've always been passionate about music of the past, if you will,” South said. “My personal opinion is that a lot of music these days lacks the human groove and swing of things.”

They've been playing together for about one year, but they only started gigging out in January. Opening for Turbo Fruits will be their third show as a band. Indigenous Robot spent the last year working on crafting the best sound and show they can, and putting together albums in a somewhat old-school way.

The trio hand-painted 69 12-inch and 40 seven-inch vinyl records, along with the sleeves, to hold the Indigenous Robot CDs.

“Iit's just everything moves so fast now with MP3s and online presence. We wanted to create something that's tangible,” South said. “We're all passionate abotu vinyls to begin with and we thought it was a unique way to adapt and get people talking about it.”

Get to Moe's in time to catch Indigenous Robot play ahead of Turbo Fruits, and check out the merch table for the one-of-a-kind album art.
