I Don’t Trust Robots is a keyboard based rock group from Baltimore, Maryland. The three-piece group consists of members Leland Sloan, who plays clavinets and synthesizers, Marshall Stone on vocals and Aaron Duckett on drums. Leland and Marshall have been working together for over 7 years and are the primary songwriters. In 2015 Aaron joined the group, adding a solid rhythm to their sound. Their first album “Let It Go!!” is available right now on Spotify and they are currently working on their second album, which is expected to be released in 2018.
“Maybe Today” starts with a chilled out drum beat with dramatic and sullen piano chords. The vocals are emotional and the melody continues to grow bigger and bigger until the song blossoms into an epic chorus and then smoothly back down into the original groove. The piano has a classical feel that works well paired with the ethereal sound of the keyboards. “Carrie May, But I Refuse To” immediately gets down with some funk. Clavinets and baselines popping left and right perfectly matched with the vocals of old soul blues music. The chorus has momentum and energy behind it. This is a tight fun track that also explodes with vitality when it needs to. “Law Have Mercy” is another funky to the bone beat with snarky clavinet lines all over it. The driving drumbeat keeps things moving while the playful vocals talk about being exactly what this song is: funky as hell. The original thing about this track is the psychedelic space noises and tones going on while the groove keeps grooving. Between that and the strong animated vocal track this is a very entertaining cinematic song that is an instant toe tapper. You can listen to “Maybe Today” on our Prime Cuts Playlist on Spotify.
