Title: “Welcome To Fat City” (Single)
Label: Wind-Up Records
Release Date: 7/22/2016
Genre: Hard Rock/Psychedelic Groove
It wasn’t long ago that I offered up some thoughts about the first single from Crobot with “NOT FOR SALE” (click the name for that narrative) and here we are once more to speak about the second single, and title of their brand new upcoming album on Wind-Up Records with “Welcome To Fat City”. The tune is a rock solid and groovy one for sure with some tight guitarwork over a pounding rhythm section and you don’t seem to need a second listen to find your head bopping up and down in time with the melody. Tight work for sure from Jake, Paul and Chris.

Title: “Not For Sale” (Single)
Label: Wind-Up Records
Release Date: 6/10/2016
Genre: Hard Rock
I’m sharing this quick overview about the latest single by Crobot since I’m of the mind that there are a lot of you listeners out there who have not yet keyed into the group. This past weekend my NYC/NJ region enjoyed not one but two concerts by a reunited Guns N Roses and each show capped an 80K attendance mark.

Label: Weathermaker Records
The cooler temperatures had finally begun to show their face in our neck of the woods and 2015 was getting closer to ending and for many it couldn’t come fast enough. I was very excited for the promise of a shiny New Year and all its concerts, good times and special musical memories. It was great that Clutch had decided to perform here in NYC as they had usually set their sights on NJ with Starland Ballroom for these end of year shows but in all honesty that venue doesn’t fit as many people as this place does. I decided to start my evening’s adventure at the American Retro Bar & Grill which is located on 51st street and 11th Avenue. It’s a short walk back to the venue and a good place to pre-game before shows here and at Stage 48 if you needed a suggestion. In the past I’ve found members of Dark Tranquility stopping in here to eat and even an out of costume Papa Emeritus II according to friends who saw a mysterious figure look inside while I wasn’t paying attention. Tonight amused me at the space for while I dined I wondered the set times and in walked Crobot for some supper. Clearly I had a little time before their set and they suggested that I give the lead band Valkyrie a chance. This was of course part of my night’s plan.
