Roebus One - Into the Diorama
Record Label: Unsigned
Release Date: August 2, 2011

Converging separate forms of artistic expression has never proved an easy task. For many artists the ideal of growing or “maturing”, as many often cite it, has always been the charming and pragmatic way forward. Take Biffy Clyro’s steady climb from raucous, grizzly Nirvana-bred Grunge to sensible, radio-friendly Alt-Rock for instance, or the journey of a band such as Talk Talk, whose risqué transition from straight-up 80s alternatives into more progressive and brazen electronic territory is looked upon now as one of the most calculated and acclaimed subversions in music history. The concept of starting in one definitive position before carefully engaging the next has more than often been the norm of development within artistic counter-culture. Roebus One, however, is part of the minority who are prone to kicking such legitimate crosses down as he continues to perfect his art through the incorporation and interference of varied musical characteristics.

Nice. Roeb is my dude in real life, watched him rock many live shows and he's a real cultural cat right down to the essence. If I was you I would have put Cage circa Depart From me & P.O.S. under the RIYL. If you're up on the NJ Underground scene you'd realize how much he sounds like Tab from Dead Poets too. I don't know how familiar you are with his actual art like canvas paintings and shit but he's an extremely dope actual artist as well.

Solid review overall, I would have went mid 70s with my review but way to give some exposure.
