Song of the Day: “Wait A Minute Here” by The ROBOTANISTS

Today’s song is “Wait A Minute Here” by The ROBOTANISTS comprised of songwriters Sarah Ellquist (vocals & keys) and Daniel DeBlanke (guitar, keys) and rhythm section Keith Boyarsky (bass) and Preston Scott Phillips (drums). ROBOTANISTS have spent the past couple of years spreading their big choruses and delicate prose across North America on tour and on the radio. This song is their breakthrough single from their 2008 debut, Close Down The Woods which topped charts in Los Angeles (KCRW, KROQ) and other major cities across the US.

The Los Angeles glamorous indie-pop quartet, often compared to Florence + The Machine, Jenny Lewis, and The Xx, are currently working with producer Danny Kalb (Beck, Karen O, Feist) to put the finishing touches on their third album, entitled Plans in Progress. The forthcoming CD/digital release will be available via Overhead Records on February 15th, 2011.

The group kicked off 2010 with their second album, a collection of covers called Shapes and Variations in March. The album is the Silver Lake quartet’s critically acclaimed ode to Los Angeles, featuring re-harmonized and rearranged tracks by Jay-Z, Lykke Li, The Black Keys, Joe Jackson, Bryan Adams, and more. ROBOTANISTS released a vinyl 12″, Current, in September 2010, which includes the band’s favorite selections from each of their first two records.

This February ROBOTANISTS will headline a residency at the Silverlake Lounge in Los Angeles as well as play several shows at the SXSW Festival in Austin, TX in March (see dates below).
