Robots Among Us: Carla from Autolux

Today’s Robot is brought to you by the awesome band Autolux, whose concert we attended last week. After much thought, I have decided that Carla is a robot. It was difficult to arrive confidently at this assessment, as she plays with two other musicians who are, ostensibly, human. Why would a robot engage in any helpful activity with humans? She should play by herself, and play like 6 instruments at the same time, like a one man band, but not like Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins, that shit was chaos and totally not cool.

Back to my point, does this then imply that those other two people who I didn’t watch at the concert, are also robots? Are they just sneakier about it? There are so many questions and so few answers. It was hard to think at the Williamsburg Music Hall as the powerful waves of awesome lashed at my face like a pissed-off, pretty effeminate octopus (go on, think about it) until the whole of my faceplace was melted into a gooey puddle and served in a panini at Sweetwater (human face is a delicacy, that restaurant is awesome). Wait, what was I talking about?

Oh yeah. Don’t trust the robots, except maybe Carla. Check the video for proof.

She has piston feet and hammer hands.
