    Album Review- Gobotron "On Your Mark, Get Set..."

    by: Alex Mayfield

    When discussing Gobotron you have to look at where it came from. This side project from Manchester Orchestra’s guitarist, Robert McDowell, brings a certain unique familiarity that is easy to enjoy. What I mean by that is that Gobotron delivers a sound that is catchy and different, but at the same time the sound of the album rings similar to the ever so great Manchester Orchestra, mainly due to the guitars (duh!) and that fact that both vocals share similar tones, but it isn’t Manchester. Gobotron makes sure that its own being, though it sounds similar, you can tell the difference. Songs drive and pulse in ways that create a feeling that most bands don’t capture. It is nice to hear something that is not another MGMT knock off. If you are expecting a masterpiece like Means Everything To Nothing, this isn’t it, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. Expect great things from Gobotron because On Your Mark, Get Set… is quite good. 7.1 out of 10

    Download: “Cobbler”, “I Lied”, “Never Turn Around”
