Robert Gomez Rides 'Into the Sun'

SPIN Staff

Who knew little ol' Denton, Texas would become the next hotspot of talented tunesmiths? Like fellow breakouts Midlake, Robert Gomez is from the tiny Southwest university town, but each of his songs are as wide as his home state itself. Though much of his work is infused with mood, conjuring inky images of heartbreak through hush, "Into the Sun" rolls like tumbleweed when Gomez's smooth, whiskey-warmed vocals meet a cantering guitar strum. Robert Gomez's Bella Union Records debut, Brand New Towns, will be brand new March 20.
