Robbers on High Street 

With the Twilight and the Saul Glennon Trio. Tuesday, December 5, at the Beachland Tavern.

The new Fatalist and Friends EP finds Robbers on High Street ditching their post-punk leanings for cinematic rock anthems. Sure, songs such as the jaunty "Married Young" and the greasy, guitar-driven "Major Minor" arrive with as much swagger as the band's debut, Fine Lines. But it's the magic touch of Italian composer Daniele Luppi (Danger Mouse, Gnarls Barkley, John Legend) that separates the upstate New York quartet from its indie peers. What's more, the title track kills with a feverish delivery, while the band's boozy cover of Paul McCartney's "Monkberry Moon Delight" will blow away both hoboes and frat boys.
