Canada's My Favorite Robot Records looks to a brand new split artist EP featuring Tiger Stripes and the My Favorite Robot boys and some stellar vocal performances... Toronto based My Favorite Robot Records has had a standout 2012 with album projects from JoriHulkkonen and Fairmont, a string of highly acclaimed singles and people flocking to the imprint in their droves. Part of the labels appeal has been it's willingness to throw together different artist, bringing real depth and diversity, whether it be on the much lauded 'Stimulus package' series or the highly successful split artist EPs. Now label label bosses My Favorite Robot step up to share the stage with the ever-excellent Tiger Stripes for the latest multi artist release. The single kicks off with Tiger Stripes feat Pete Fij. Mikael Nordgren AKA Tiger Stripes hails from Stockholm, Sweden and is no stranger to the MFRR label having released his own 'Crossroads EP' on the imprint earlier in the year. Here he teams up with vocalist Pete Fij from Creation Records band Adorable to record the superb 'Out of Phase', an electronic odyssey that draws on thread of atmospheric deep house to provide the bed for Fij's ethereal and emotive vocals, quality stuff. The flipside sees the My Favorite Robot trio of James Teej, Jared Simms and Voytek Korab join forces with London based Silky for a dark tinged rework of the 1984 Tear for Fears classic 'Shout'. The record is the product of a collaborative recording session held in London when the MFR teams were here on tour and it is superb fusion of a great pop record with the robots own unique production style. Dramatic synth lines, heavy delays and swirling FX create the soundbed for Silky to deliver an impressive take on Roland Orzabal's vocal parts and the end result is a quirky and genuinely unique version of a much loved classic. My Favorite Robot Records deliver again with a single that shows once again why they are finding such favour, enjoy!
