If Queens of the Stone Age called themselves "robot rock," then Vocoder-saturated bandroids Sun and Sail Club are rebooting the '80s-era Transformers cartoon — bright, colorful, heavy as anything. More than meets the eye, this crew — former Kyuss/Obsessed bassist Scott Thomas Reeder and current Fu Manchu members Bob Balch and Scott Reeder — shoots the sludge-bubblegum stoner pop of contemporary bands like Torche and Baroness into the center of Bambaataa's Planet Rock: The riffs are repetitive and bludgeoning, while the hooks are garbled from a Vocoder whose levels are set to "Mr. Roboto" or "Man-Machine."

Stream the whole thing below, and cop the album from Satin Records on November 19 — or kiss their shiny metal ass.
