Biography

For years, Kyle Andrews has struggled with a dirty secret. He was, in the eyes of so many, a "singer-songwriter", his past pockmarked with words like "sweet," "catchy," and perhaps most often of all, "bedroom." However, according to Kyle, his latest full-length release Robot Learn Love only sounds like a bedroom pop album if your bedroom happens to be ... Read more in Amazon's Kyle Andrews Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Breakthrough Album April 16, 2013

Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Real Blasty isn't perfect, but it's hard not to be excited about music that comes this close to firing on all cylinders. Andrews takes the fundamentals of pop--hooks, choruses, sugary sweet piano melodies (think Hellogoodbye)--and dresses them in quirky formulas and an obsessive, precise attention to detail (think Spoon). And as far as details go, there's not a misplaced bit of echo or distorted guitar on this album.

As an initially hesitant techno beat and twittering piano notes drive "Sushi," Andrews piles the familiar trappings of indie pop--the handclaps, the wordless cooing and shouting, the synthesized bridge before one last triumphant outbreak of chorus--onto a track that renders him a cutesy, melodic foot-soldier of Moby the Great. This is the track that sonically reimagines the Microsoft-Paint-era Technicolor radio on the album's cover, a perfect anthem for certain Brooklyn dance clubs. Speaking of which, "Naked in New York," sounds less familiar: it opens with interplay between synthesizers, but quickly moves into newer territory--the drums kick in and an electric guitar wail takes over as Andrews sings "I can't give you up/I'm not afraid of the dark/I'm not afraid of the dark."

As a general rule, everything on Real Blasty is designed to be bigger and better than any of Andrew's back catalog. We only get two ballads, "Cut and Paste" and the sentimental album closer "Bus". The rest is all energetic pop, drenched in kicking drum beats, keyboards, and synthesizer and accented with just about anything else Kyle can pull out of his computer. "Blow it Out," while clearly within the realms of a pop song, shows that Andrews could probably make a more than decent dance album.
