Humans tend to dominate music with our flesh-draped limbs, beating hearts, and you know, souls. While the world of robotic bands is small—Captured by Robots, the Trons, Ke$ha (no way any human would make music like that)—it's growing, most notably with Brooklyn outfit Octant. Octant is the work of one man (Portlander Matthew Steinke) alongside a fully automated robotic backing band of sorts—it's more digital player piano than the flailing arms of the Lost in Space robot. Not entirely a gimmick, Steinke's hushed voice adds a distinctly emotional (read: human) feel, and his surrounding cast of movable parts makes him resemble a heartbroken scientist, playing to an audience of lonely robotic friends.
