Prior to playing with Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Gary War, Kurt Vile, and Panda Bear, Robert Robinson made dreamy, bedroom-pop music on his own in Enfield, Connecticut. Bearing resemblance to a psychedelic cassette played on a broken boom box, his first self-titled Sore Eros CD-R was released on his independent label Light Dead Sea in 2003. Over the next few years, Robinson traveled around the country and collaborated with fellow lo-fi musicians before moving back to Connecticut in 2007 to assist his dad, who had recently suffered a heart attack. In his downtime, as his father made a full recovery, Robinson recorded Second Chants as a tribute to his dad’s second chance at life. The album was released in 2009 on Shdwply Records.
