The last time we heard from Retisonic was way back in 2006 when they released the “Levittown” EP. Guess life got in the way there. But they’re back now with the album “Robots Fucking”… an album title that uhm… describes their sound? What do you guys sound like? Like robots fucking. Ha!

With jagged guitar lines that harken back to late 80s DC punk, the guys in Retisonic create an urgent sound that’s still plenty melodic. The songs are mostly mid-tempo yet they rock from start to finish. Dancing to them might prove a bit tricky though with all the start/stop arrangements they threw in the mix. It all leads to a very calculated sound that still sounds warm enough and it’s contradictions like that that make “Fucking Robots” a fine album.
