Milton and the Devils Party is a rock band for thinking people--or maybe a think band for rocking people.
The Philadelphia-area trio's latest CD is their sophomore release, How Wicked We’ve Become, out on independent label Transit of Venus with national distribution through RedEye, and produced by Brian McTear (Matt Pond PA, B.C. Camplight, Mazarin, and The A-Sides).
Paste writer Andrew Whitman says this new album has “deep undercurrents of longing and yearning in the lyrics, cleverly disguised by the bright, uptempo music. The themes are universally relevant” but also has “enough heartfelt angst to keep even the most introspective, morose English major happy. Or at least as happy as introspective morose English majors ever get.”
And while singer-songwriter-bassist Robinson admits that he “may have some kooky ideas about the marriage of literature and rock-n-roll,” the band’s music is accessible and unpretentious. As Jonathan Takiff of the Philadelphia Daily News explains, “Their lyrics have an edge, but the spirit of [the] songs … is more sarcastic punk than highfalutin poetics.”
