Robbers on High Street
Brooklyn quintet Robbers on High Street come from a time when “indie rock” wasn’t so ubiquitous as to be almost devoid of meaning, and today they continue to make music that holds true to that original sound. That is, they combine clever lyrics and catchy choruses à la The Strokes with the rousing rhythms and brash guitar of Spoon and add a late-'60s mellow tinge to create songs perfect for steering wheel–drumming and repeat listening.
