Your Daily Lick: Ricky Lee Robinson

Secret Love Tricks (Hypnodisk Records)



Oakland's Ricky Lee Robinson dresses sharp in a bright white tux and can play drums and guitar simultaneously. Yet his debut leaves something to be desired. The songwriting is sharp but uneven; highlights "Psychic Woman" and "Jeans On" shine as superb examples of the weird, bare-bones rock 'n' roll he strives for.
