Rob Mitchelson is perhaps best known as a Calgary improv guy, but for many years he was secretly hand-crafting music in his basement studio. Loaded with playful pop melodies and clever-weird lyrics, his first album The Hollywood Version mixes the harmonic indie vibe of Sloan with Beck-like genre-hopping.
His second even weirder album, Knightlaser: 2042 is the ironic or possible totally sincere synthesizer soundtrack to an 80’s movie that never existed a surprise.
Rob absolutely guarantees your favourite streaming algorithm will struggle with finding music quite like his (but in a good way).
