EDITORS’ NOTES

“Did I make money? Was I proud? Did I play my songs too loud? Did I leave my life to chance or did I make you (expletive) dance?” While many electronic musicians let the beats do the talking, Robert DeLong goes deep in lyrical content. Our Editors' Choice, Just Movement expands the PLUR mentality to include meditations on spirituality (“Few Years Make” and “Religious Views”) and identity (“Global Concepts,” quoted above, and “Basically I”)—all the while pounding dance floors into submission. DeLong is a rare commodity—adept at melting faces while leaving the brain stem intact.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Great Album

Came across this artist when a friend played Global Concepts and it immediately hooked me. Then I listened further with Just Movement and even more surprised. I enjoy the creative writing and intricate sounds and arrangements. It's what I have personally been waiting for from an artist, just something kinda different. Great job, I'm a fan.

Amazing!

Robert DeLong seems a wee bit like a bright, shiny, non-angsty version of Trent Reznor. Like Reznor, he's into DIY from writing down to production, writes smart lyrics that manage not to feel forced, and demonstrates an amazing sense of melody, with the ability to capitalize and compound on it during the mixing process. You won't regret buying this album. No idea why its creator isn't super, mega famous. Needs better management, I guess.

THIS IS THE STUFF, SIR!

I'm a hard core devotee of Robert DeLong and bought this entire album on iTunes, and it was totally worth it! He deserves more attention and is such a talented music artist, which evinces in his newer songs as well. Can't wait for his future stuff!
