We just got our first review of SHAPES AND VARIATIONS!!!!!!
LABuzzBlog was the fist to review ROBOTANISTS new covers album SHAPES AND VARIATIONS, raving
“Robotanists do a great job of creating the soundtrack to your life in LA and all the grey sadness and epic-ness that comes along with that.”
Some song by song highlights include:
“Never Tear Us Apart” is “the stand-out track… Aside for this being a great song to begin with, the Robotanists give it a sweet and soulful makeover, complete with Casio tones, driving drums, and a lonely and powerful guitar solo. The song comes crashing down at the end like the INXS version never did, but you always expected it to. Effects and all – they find the soul of this song and expose it for what it is, a heart-wrenching song about the pain of loving so much it hurts.”
“Are You Really Going Out With Her” “is a realistic soundscape to hipster heartbreak, and one you’re going to want to play over and over.”
“Exiled State of Mind” “is soft and dreamy, and the vocals are as lightly refreshing and beautiful as Los Angeles rain… a nice, sentimental song for when you finally move out of LA and want to remember all the places you drove in your car.”
“Glass In Your Headlights” is a “magical version [of Phillip Glass’ “Glassworks” ]… This is really a song you can get lost in and float away.”
