Todaysterday by Robbie and the Robots is a fun album that artfully combines the emotions felt during a wonton night of drunken excess with those felt the next morning, head in hands, mumbling, 'I can't believe I did that'. Their most glowing praise to date was to be voted 2004's number one 'alternative band' and number five 'best party band' in Austin in The Edge Magazine. The songs of Robbie and the Robots represent the cathartic release of lead singer Robbie Doyen. The obvious humor found in his choruses and catch phrases such as, 'I don't smoke crack on the day of the Lord,' 'She's not very strong, but her mouth is a muscle,' and 'Everything is going great so clap your hands and masturbate,' belie an underlying sadness that adds a depth of ironicism to the mood of the music. Todaysterday provides a fun time that revels in debauchery while simultaneously challenging it. Much the same as bands like Cake, REM in their early years, and the Violent Femmes, Robbie and the Robots' songs are humorously accessible to the general public while thought provoking to those in search of meaning. Robbie and the Robots has played all over the state of Texas from San Marcos, to Austin, to San Antonio, to Corpus Christi, to Houston, to Dallas, and more. Their music has played on radio stations in Houston, San Marcos, and Austin. They have appeared live on KPFT in Houston, KIND Radio and KTSW in San Marcos, and KLBJ's Dudley and Bob show in Austin. They also have a video in circulation on the Austin Music Network, and appear on an Oasis CD sampler that receives national airplay. The band has received press in the Houston Chronicle, the San Marcos Scene, TSU's University Star, Study Breaks, KISSFM, The Edge Magazine, and the Propergander. 'Admittedly, it took a little bit of time for me to warm up to this album, but once I did warm up, I knew I was a lovestruck fan of Robbie and the Robots.' -Jennifer Pollock, San Marcos Scene 'His songs make sweet pop music magic.' Jeff Walker, University Star In The Edge Magazine Robbie and the Robots was voted 2004's #1 Alternative Band in Austin, and the #5 Best Party Band in Austin. Jesse Hodges was also named the #1 Acoustic Guitar Player in Austin.
