about

Love In The Age Of Circuitry, the debut album from singer/songwriter Andy Spain, explores humanity's place in an increasingly synthetic world. Through songs about robots, heartbreak and modern life, Andy crafts a unique style that merges past and future, old and new, folk and the avant garde.

Inspired by luminaries such as John Lennon, Neil Young, David Bowie and Frank Zappa, Andy's style is centered around insightful lyrics laced with cynical wit, infectious melodies and a psychedelic sound palette. In the tradition of Trent Reznor and Prince, Andy Spain not only wrote all the songs on Love In The Age Of Circuitry, he engineered it and played all the instruments. It is truly a singular artistic statement.

Released under Andy's own label, Sci-Folk Recordings, all proceeds from sales go directly to the artist, so you are supporting independent music with your purchase.

Track Name: Parade Of Giant Robots
PARADE OF GIANT ROBOTS
(Spain)

In the year 2707
After two or three nuclear wars
When the world is at the height of its destruction
Giant robots are born

Built to serve and to protect man
Like your very own Superman
Twenty stories the mechanical stands
Giant robots are sworn

Are they gods? Are they toys?
Are they friends to little boys?
Do they love us? Do they care?
There they go, flying up in the air
Up in the air

Mecha7 and Trident13
Had a battle over the Baltic Sea
Trident13 had an atomic blast
And blasted Mecha7 into the past

That’s the way the world became enslaved
It was the final battle for man’s fate
Now humanity curses the day
Giant robots were born

Are they gods? Are they toys?
Are they friends to little boys?
Do they love us? Do they care?
There they go, flying up in the air
Up in the air
Track Name: Time Crush
TIME CRUSH
(Spain)

Whatever am I gonna do?
I’ve fallen so in love with you
A love that’s never meant to be
You died in 1863

Until they build a time machine
I’ll have to be content with dreams
In my mind you’re here with me
And in my mind you’ll always be

There just ain’t no girls like you these days
I’m so tired of these shallow women’s ways

I saw your story on TV
And read about you fervently
The way you held yourself with such grace
And left no pictures of your face

But I have seen the actress play
Your part, and I just have to say
If I could be there by your side
I’d cross the very sands of time

There just ain’t no girls like you these days
I’m so tired of these shallow women’s ways
Track Name: Cyborg
CYBORG
(Spain)

We’re gonna take you when we go
On through the future cold and slow
We’re gonna take away your soul
Cyborg
Cyborg

Who’s gonna get us through the night?
All those computer parts look outta sight
And we might get into a fight
Cyborg
Cyborg

Oh, won’t you tell me what I’m seeing
Could it be my senses disagreeing
Or could this be a human being?
Cyborg

Track Name: Modern Life For Souls
MODERN LIFE FOR SOULS
(Spain)

Doctors prescribing death
Have to buy every breath
City skies have little form
Your life is like a uniform
Put it on when you awake
Hope to God it doesn’t break
Cement City’s just ahead
Where everything’s as good as dead

And the world still turns...

Born and raised on the farm
Country sun to keep you warm
Where the concrete cuts the night
The sun replaced by neon light
Like an ant crawls up the mound
To where the other ants are found
Just a number, not a name
And all the faces look the same

And the world still turns...
Track Name: Alien
ALIEN
(Spain)

After all that we’ve been through
Don’t you
Think that we could work this out somehow?
But now, I feel so far away
Seems like we were lovers only yesterday

And you make me feel like an alien
Take me with you when you fly away
Take me with you when you fly away

Seems that we just can’t figure it out
The secret language
We used to share back when we used to care
Are you still there?
You don’t hear the words I say
Are you okay to go our separate ways?

And you make me feel like an alien
Take me with you when you fly away
Take me with you when you fly away
Track Name: Rundown Carnival Of Love
RUNDOWN CARNIVAL OF LOVE
(Spain)

Women will chase you down
Like they’re drunk out of their minds
Play all kinds of tricks on you
Till they make you call out their name
Once they win your heart
Somehow they don’t want you no more
Just like a booby prize
Won in a carnival game

Can’t be the lonely one
Sure you’re not the only one
Everybody gets to take a ride
But no one’s ever been satisfied
In the rundown carnival of love

Paper says it’s gonna snow
So you dream of where you’d go
If you had a month or two
Just take off and catch a clue
Get that girl out of your thoughts
Commit deeds without getting caught
Take on a new identity
Just like the man you want to be

Inside your lonely dream
You can still feel the steam
Of the way she held your self-esteem
And no one’s gonna care if you scream
In the rundown carnival of love

Back to the shooting gallery
Show yourself you ain’t done yet
And you can’t see her anyway
Where the broken sights are fixed
When you’ve blasted her from your mind
Go off and feed your baser needs
Just remember we’re all decoys
Set up for Cupid’s kicks

You just keep falling down
Like that old circus clown
And you can’t even make a sound
And there ain’t much laughter to be found
In the rundown carnival of love
Track Name: Falling Up
FALLING UP
(Spain)

Falling up, falling down
Turning everything upside down
How this world spins around
Falling up not falling down

I was standing on a bridge
I looked down and there I found
Something to live for

Falling up, falling down
Turning everything upside down
How this world spins around
Falling up not falling down

When you’re caught between the sky
And the ground you yearn to fly
My wings were broken

Falling up, falling down
Turning everything upside down
How this world spins around
Falling up not falling down

This world spins
I’m falling up
