NEW ALBUM AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE!!!!

IN STORES APRIL 6th…

The follow up to ROBOTANISTS’ debut album, CLOSE DOWN THE WOODS, SHAPES AND VARIATIONS is the Silver Lake quartet’s acclaimed ode to Los Angeles, featuring seven covers reharmonized and rearranged, and including tracks by Jay-Z, Lykke Li, The Black Keys, Joe Jackson, Bryan Adams, and more.

SHAPES AND VARIATIONS shines as the band effortlessly transforms material from the popular zeitgeist, giving it new life, full of all of the heartache, hopes and dreams that defines the “City of Angels.”

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Joe Jackson’s classic [“Is She really Going Out with Him”] gets a gender bend and couldn’t sound sexier. “Dance, Dance, Dance” is reworked to the point if you didn’t know any better you’d assume Lykke Li was covering them. Seriously go compare the two… the band was challenged to make the most overplayed songs listen-able again. They rose to the challenge and then some.” INTRAFFIK.com

“Robotanists do a great job of creating the soundtrack to your life in LA… “Never Tear Us Apart” is “the stand-out track…  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.” LABUZZBLOG.com

“Sarah Ellquist, Daniel de Blanke and crew use songs like Lykke Li’s “Dance, Dance Dance,” the Black Keys’ “All You Ever Wanted” and INXS’ “Never Tear Us Apart” like putty. Most fun, though, is the reshaping (and gender-flipping) of Joe Jackson’s “Is She Really Going Out With Him?” — which, when Ellquist sings it, becomes a long cool drink of water called “Are You Really Going Out With Her?” Kevin Bronson, BUZZBANDS.LA

“Robotanists are a band everyone has to see live. I’ll even go as far as to predict they’ll be on the Coachella lineup next year.”  TRENDYMUSICGUIDE.COM

“Side projects are supposed to be side projects and most of them are just for fun. However, if you’re The Bird and The Bee or Robotanists, cover albums come off as genius… every track [on ROBOTANISTS’ Shapes and Variations] is completely breathtaking!” WILD-TONIC.BLOGSPOT.COM

“I heart @robotanists. “Exiled State of Mind” makes me deliriously happy every time I listen to it.” Seraphina Lotkhamnga, Beatcrave.com via Twitter (@Seraphina_L)
