I cannot believe I haven't heard of Ima Robot until now! This band is based in Los Angeles and playing music since the 1990's. The well known vocalist Alexander Ebert (also vocalist from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros). The other band members include Timmy "the terror" Anderson, Justin Meldal-Johnsne, Oligee, and Joey Waronker. Ima Robot has toured with Hot Hot Heat, Hoobastank, and The Sounds. I would say the genre is experimental/indie. They have a unique sound and their songs are all generally 4-6 minutes long. I listen to them while studying or try to relax. My favorite song is Rough Night! After listing to them online for the past couple of days I have got up the courage to buy their CD online for only $9.99 how can you go wrong!
