Stream: Robert DeLong, ‘Long Way Down’


Robert DeLong

Robert DeLong will follow-up his excellent debut “Just Movement” with the “Long Way Down” EP. The highly-anticipated 4-track release from the young electronic meastro of Wii-motes, joysticks, game pads and controllers, drums, keys and much more is slated for Nov. 10 via Glassnote Records. Those lucky enough to have caught him as the midnight special guest at Planets’ residency show at the Satellite on Monday heard a live preview. The EP’s title track, however, is now available for everyone to play on repeat. With opening lyrics “I’ve been f–king around / While you’ve been saving the world,” DeLong demonstrates his talents yet again in writing concise yet biting lyrics to accompany his glitch-stomping melodies. Futuristic yet realistic, “Long Way Down” is an intelligent, slow-burning electro-rock anthem where his vocals shine as much as laser sounds seem to zoom into your headphones. DeLong’s sophomore album is set to release in early 2015.
