Full disclosure: Ryland Bouchard (aka the Robot Ate Me) has recently become a friend and musical associate of mine. Luckily I have a paper trail of Robot Ate Me adoration from before I knew him. On his latest, "Carousel Waltz," he turns to love, a subject seldom broached on his last two releases. The results are heartbreaking and shyly, painfully sweet, not in a cloying way, but more in a last-10-minutes-of-"Buffalo 66" way.
