Robby Vee recently came through with his highly anticipated new EP. Robby’s music, in particular, the eleven tracks on his latest EP release DOUBLE SPIN, percolates with unquestionable emotional authenticity and total command over the traditions fueling his musical style. These are artfully composed songs, but they are likewise uncompromising. Each track is written in a thoroughly realistic style with enough of a poetic flourish to sound remarkably fresh.
The influences in this EP are obvious, but they never manifest themselves in a heavy-handed way and it distinguishes the outfit from many of Robby’s contemporaries turning his attention to this sort of music. The production situates the rockstar’s strengths in such a way that his songwriting and playing, even when it has the lightest touch, has a visceral, physical quality. It’s a little wonder.
