about

SHAPES AND VARIATIONS is a collection from ROBOTANISTS, of covers, reharmonized and rearranged to paint an aural portrait of all that they love about Los Angeles...

“Joe Jackson’s classic ["Are you 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… 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.” LABUZZBLOG.com

Track Name: Exiled State of Mind
LYRICS:

This Broken Heart
Don’t hurt as much
In Los Angeles
Those sad, sad, lonely memories
Just fade away
You know I wasn’t born here
Thank God I found this place
Now every day I dream here
Amidst the life and decay
But no other place could understand me …

But LA
Living in the “City of Angels”
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now that you’re in LA
These, streets, they’ll make you feel famous
The sun will inspire you
Here in LA

Once started out, some years ago
Broke and living down town
Now I’ve got my song, on the radio
Still got that “day job”
Somehow I made my way
To, broke in Silver Lake
But every day I still dream here until I get my day
Cause no other place could ever get me…

Like LA
Living in the “City of Angels”
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now that you’re in LA
These, streets, they’ll make you feel famous
The sun will inspire you
Here in LA

So Lost when I made it to this big city
Saw myself leave behind all the self pity
Left the grey and made my way
Its not for everybody but I’m here to stay

In LA
Living in the “City of Angels”
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now that you’re in LA
These, streets, they’ll make you feel famous
the sun will inspire you
Here in LA
