Kyle Andrews Announces West Coast Tour Dates With Madi Diaz; New Album Robot Learn Love Out Now

Kyle Andrews Announces West Coast Tour Dates With Madi Diaz
New Album Robot Learn Love Out Now  
Kyle Andrews has extended his fall tour to include west coast dates with Madi Diaz. Kyle Andrews last visit to the west coast was an acoustic solo tour in 2009. These shows will mark Kyle Andrews first-ever full band performances in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. Kyle Andrews is touring in support of his new album, Robot Learn Love out now. All shows are listed below.
Despite its walls of electric guitars, raw synths and blasting drums, Robot Learn Love    was conceived and recorded almost exclusively by Kyle himself. Robot is an exercise in duality: lo-fi vocals recorded through built-in laptop mics, others recorded through top-of-the-line studio preamps, drums simulated with software in the bedroom, and backing live string players tracked at pro recording studios. Half drowning in a swirl of stuttering synths, Andrews' plaintive cry, "Why's it got to be so complex?" at last gives way to a rest, a breath, only to be sucked back into the lush chaos. Throughout, Andrews balances the bombastic sonic textures with personality and warmth.
Genre seems to shift between dance, pop-rock and indie electro-pop more effortlessly than Andrews' previous albums, and even when fully synthesized, feels more "live" and fierce than ever. Full band in tow, the live show exudes an energetic, rock 'n roll vibe that is twice as loud as anything he has managed to capture in the studio until now. If Kyle Andrews is the robot who has learned to love, he has also learned to rock.
