Robinson safe out of the 'Summer of Fear'

Remember this name (if you can).

Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson has wowed audiences with his compelling and soul-baring songs since debuting last year with his self-titled album (as well as intriguing them with his hard-drinking, rocker lifestyle).

This year sees him sober, signed to Saddle Creek, and with a two-disc follow-up, “Summer of Fear” – a chronicle of one particularly tough summer two years ago that saw him revisiting bad habits, living in semi-homelessness and ending his nights at the bar – every night.

One of the couches Robinson crashed on belonged to Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio fame. Friends since meeting en route to a Grizzly Bear show in 2005, Malone helped Robinson in the studio as the musician recorded what he envisioned as his “classic-rock album,” ramping up the tension in such standout tracks as “Death by Dust,” “Summer of Fear pt. 2,” “The Sound,” and the 11-and-a-half draining minutes of “More Than a Mess.”

While Robinson, with that summer of fear far behind him, is eager to get back into the studio to record his third album (one wonders what the inspiration will be on that one), catch him live at the Bell House November 19. With These United States. Tickets $10 in advance, $12 at the door. At 8 p.m. The Bell House is located at 149 7th St. For more information, call 718-643-6510.
