groove is in the heart.
We’re Mike Giresi, Mutt Giresi, and Marco Giresi. We all work at our parent’s pizza shop and play in our band Chocolate Robots. Our record PIZZA FACE just came out!
The album was recorded in Sarnia, Ontario mainly by us, using a bunch of old tube and tape equipment my dad had left over from being an Italian singer songwriter in the 70s.
Initially, the album was mixed locally and it sounded like Michael Bolton, but luckily we ran into the Fab Moretti from the Strokes. We went bowling and after the game he kindly passed our music on to Thom Monahan (Devandra Banhart, Vetiver). Thom started working on the record and the music came together. It sounds better than we ever thought it would! Drunk on confidence we got Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Unicorns) to mix 3 songs on the record as well.
We’ve put together a full stream of the album on our bandcamp!
"But twee now is almost a value set," said Lisle Mitnik, guitarist for Very Truly Yours, Chicago’s best-known twee offering to the latest resurgence of twee-inflected rock. "It’s a rejection of societal pressures, a denial of coolness, punk without anger. It can be precious, but a precious moment can also be beautiful."
