You don’t have to be a music critic to hear a little John and Exene in this south-side three-piece’s male-female vocal interplay, but Daylight Robbery doesn’t stop with X… They combine the short sharp bursts of late-70s west-coast bands like the Bags and the Wipers with the present-day energy of sweat-soaked Pilsen house shows.

If you haven’t heard their newest LP, mastered here, listen below.

 

Daylight Robbery – Ecstatic Vision LP, mastered here, Maximum Rock n Roll Review:

Daylight Robbery

 

 

Daylight Robbery first review from RAZORCAKE:

“In 2010, David and Christine Wolf had to replace the equipment that was stolen when their Chicago house was broken into. They wound up building a home studio, where their band Daylight Robbery recorded their gritty second album, Ecstatic Vision, on a Tascam 38 tape recorder. The album’s lyrics come from people balancing adult responsibilities with playing in a DIY band; rebuilding while sorting out memories and trying not to dwell in the past; asking questions like, “What’s the point?” and “Where do we go from here?” While the lyrics are taking stock, the music pushes forward, vibrant, faster, urgent, with David and Christine both sounding more confident and engaged on the mic. Like their first album, Through the Confusion, Ecstatic Vision has ten songs, but it’s five minutes shorter, wrappin g up after twenty-eight minutes with the choppy, jolting “Grassroots,” one of the few new songs that hasn’t jettisoned the band’s new wave influence for spacious, propulsive Australian garage like Radio Birdman or Eddy Current Suppression Ring. It’s not that Daylight Robbery sound like a different band, it’s that they’ve avoided the “same thing, not as exciting” sophomore trap by putting out a record that is rawer and punker, the live-to-tape closeness (and muffled drums) making it easy to mistake for the lost demos of some awesome L.A. by way of Australia band, circa 1979. A retooled dynamic compensates for the downgrade in fidelity. In this claustrophobic recording, the guitar parts have a stronger delineation between riffs and leads, and the band creates the signature space between David’s dark, desert/surf leads and the counting-trees-flying-by-on-the-highway momentum of Christine’s bass and Jeff’s drums by minimizing overdubs. If Confusion was the sound of running down the midd le of a dark street, trying to gauge the closeness of your pursuer’s footsteps over the pounding of your heart, Vision is peeking out of a gangway, panting, knife pulled, hoping that the person chasing you runs past. Keep fighting, Daylight Robbery. –CT Terry”

The sessions mastered here from Endless Column are going to be released as two 7″s on Taken By Surprise / Twintoe Records and Erste Theke Tonträger.

Taken from the Erste Theke Tonträger website:

“Douglas Burns was in the Observers. Douglas Burns wrote the Observers records, so What’s Left Now? Besides, Red Dons – Douglas Burns is now in Endless Column. And Endless Column are just like his other Bands – Beautiful!

But how this Band started? Doug told me: “David Wolf (Daylight Robbery/Pedestrians) & I wanted to do a project together. We decided that over the course of last summer we would write and record some songs together before I moved away from Chicago. He had an old 4-track that he was itching to use, so we recorded everything on that. Eric Watts joined the project on drums. At the end of the summer we wanted to play a show. So, Jim McCann (Tyrades) joined us and we recorded this demo and played our one & only show.”
So thats it! enjoy this perfect mixture of Red Dons + Daylight Robbery Songwriting, i love it!!!”

 

Check out the song MONUMENTAL CROSS taken from the upcoming DAYLIGHT ROBBERY – ECSTATIC VISION LP.

Mastering the new Daylight Robbery (Chicago) LP coming out on Residue Records.

Formed in 2005 by David Wolf and Christine Gilliland, initial home recorded demos evolved into a full fledged band with the addition of Tricia Savickius (CONDENADA) on drums in 2006. A short while later, John Trask (FOURTEEN OR FIGHT) took over on drums, and the band recorded its first EP (on Residue Records) and went on a tour of the east coast.

“Daylight Robbery: Sounds like their records come with a spool of police tape that raps around your stereo as it plays. It cordons off a crime scene, sets the place in noir-ish blacks and whites, expands to ten times its original volume, and carefully inspects and detects.”

-Todd Taylor, Razorcake

For lovers of dark punk/post punk. Listen to some of their recent records below. Taken from their Bandcamp page where you can listen to/download more of their records.
