Your Daily Lick: Robots of Fury

Reverse in Reverse EP (self-released)

A decade after its fade from the mainstream, alternative rock persists. The reason is clear: angst, melody, and distortion are like bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Oakland’s female-fronted Robots of Fury employs more shoegaze than grunge, which keeps things fresh and results in some transcendent passages – or, in the case of “Temporary Fixation,” four whole minutes.
