About Lousy Robot
Lousy Robot is a four piece power-pop indie-rock band based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Founded in 2003 by Jim Phillips and Dandee Fleming, the quintet quickly became a local favorite within the live music scene of the Southwest.
Their critically acclaimed first release, The Strange and True Story of Your Life, is an enigmatic, narcotic effort influenced and produced by John Dufilho of The Deathray Davies.
Lousy Robot’s second release, one year later, Smile Like You Are Somewhere Else, was a further collaboration between the band and Dufilho at Salim Nourallah’s Pleasantry Lane Studio in Dallas, Texas. The collection of introspective pop songs features special guests Cory Watson of Black Tie Dynasty and John Lefler of Dashboard Confessional.
Lousy Robot is well known for creating catchy, noisy, post-punk songs aimed at the cynical, yet somehow resonating with the hopeful. Online magazine Wig Wam Bam says of Lousy Robot: ” … pop heaven and the happiest music ever about feeling so bad.”
Their music has been featured on many television programs like MTV’s “Parental Control”, Animal Planets “From Underdog to Wonderdog”, Food Networks “Emril Green” and more.
