Video of the Day: Amp Live vs. the Robot vs. Trackademics
There's so much going for this video clip--one of the singles off Amp Live's upcoming solo record. "Gary is a Robot" infects you like Swine Flu with that funky android club beat, the lip synching nurse bit is cute, and the whole concept of a robot who swipes hipster styles is really smart (especially since the song both makes fun of Auto-Tune and uses it to its advantage). Throw in a cameo from Trackademics as another of Gary's victims, and Amp is off to an excellent start in stoking anticipation for his album, due out in February.
Amp's been a local DJ/producer to keep an ear on for a while now, though. His work with Zion I, as well as his Radiohead remixes, have elevated his name far outside the Bay. (His production resumes lists Akon, Tokyo Police Club, and MGMT as clients). He just better hope Gary doesn't start hanging out in his studio--that's one shady little robot.
