Robot dance music & sad robot lullabies, made by robots...for robots. We attempt to always try and find something a little off the beaten path to give to you, something sincere yet playful... innovative and moving...We have fun when creating these sounds. We simply make music, and hope you enjoy it
Recorder began in 2004 as a solo project started by robbo, under the alias "Birthday Boy". In Winter 2006 Recorder was introduced & albums were created. Recorder signed with Switzerland based Minuta Records in Fall of 2006. Fall of 2007 brought with it cold, magic, & the rest of the robots...Recorder now consists of Robbo (Production / Synth), Jeff Whitlatch (Synth / Vocoder), & Lynn Robertson (Vocals)
This hybrid makes for an unbelievable live performance, more touching melodies, and intensified brain wave manipulation
What the others say
Chris Vrenna (Tweaker
Original member of Nine Inch Nails , Marylin Manson, Gnarls Barkley
"You have a very well thought out act going here. The cheeky robot costumes, vocoders, theramins...it all works together great. Musically it sounded great and you handled two difficult instruments (vocoders and the theramin) very well. Your characters and presentation reminds me a little of The Flaming Lips meets Daft Punk, which is a huge compliment.
"Sad robot lullabies, and robot dance music...That sums up Recorder perfectly! They may be from Tulsa, OK, but they have NYC buzzing."
