Featuring Dean Wareham (yes he of Galaxie 500 and Luna fame) it says but unless my intuition is way off the mark his contribution is of the chord variety only on this occasion. We’ve always liked Mr Robot’s voice anyway so it hardly matters especially as ‘By Your Side’ is a particular dishy offering. It is taken from his album ‘Soft-Core’ which came out last year, which included ‘Mean’, which we’ve already written about in glowing terms. No mean feat pulling in a Wareham contribution and he repeated the trick with none other than 80’s goddess Alison Moyet for the distinctly Yazooish ‘Waiting’ which like all the other tracks from the record is streaming on MRF’s website (there are a bucket of remixes too, the Solvent mix had us glued to our earphones). Don’t underrate this robot, he has his heart set on world domination. KD
