The Bay Area is undergoing a renaissance in overcast electronic pop. Along with the moody rhythms of locals like James and Evander, and Chucha Santamaria y Usted, the lingering tempos and gloomy futurism of Exray's have pushed the S.F. duo to the forefront of this local movement. The band's new album, Trust a Robot, sees Jon Bernson and Michael Falsetto-Mapp further developing their distressed sonic palette and inventive songwriting. "You Can Trust a Robot" is an apocalyptic anthem bolstered by imagery straight out of a Philip K. Dick novel, while "Yellow Light" sounds like a lonely lament from a ghost in the postmillennial machine.
