Not exactly a ray of sunshine but armed with quite a vivid -- if somber -- imagination, Spin Buzzcatcher Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson skitters through two tunes -- one about his own death -- at Brooklyn's own Union Pool venue. And though the details of his demise on "Buriedfed" are a touch unsettling, Robinson must love black comedy, for he and his backing band are all smiles throughout. And why shouldn't they be, with critical acclaim and stamps of approval from fellow borough buddies like Grizzly Bear and TV on the Radio, in addition to a killer live presence?

Watch Robinson and company packed close on a tight stage, as the scarce lighting paired with the grainy black and white footage accentuates the raw, natural quality to the songwriter's craft and voice -- even as he gets a little cheery during the rolling, steady-build of "Woodfriend."Now Hear This: "Buriedfed"
