TOY
Happy In The Hollow

Here come TOY with their fourth album but their first for the Tough Love label. Like previous work it touches on the cornerstones of post-punk, kraut-rock, electronica and folk but this time comes with a directness perhaps missing from earlier work. Recorded both at their home studios and with ace producer Dan Carey, this propul...view item »

Proper Ornaments
Foxhole

One of them is in Ultimate Painting and Veronica Falls, another is in Toy and Pink Flames. Thus have we Foxhole, a record that abounds in sweet harmonies, clever songwriting and jangles galore that was put together between bouts of work with their other projects. Lead t...view item »

TOY
The Willo / Energy

Two new songs from Toy, working in two fairly different styles. It's a double A-side release, so each track deserves equal prominence. ‘The Willo’ is a remarkably spaced-out seven minute number, with organ and acoustic guitar prominent. While &lsq...view item »

TOY
Clear Shot

They are a strange lot Toy, they never completely blow you away but they are very pleasant to listen to. This is their third album and they recorded it themselves then sent it over to the states for a bit of gloss. It carries on the moody krauty template from previous albums and lead track 'Fast Silver' has some rather mood...view item »


TOY and Jane Weaver / H Hawkline
Fell From The Sun / It's A Drag

Not much info on this but it looks like London psych rockers Toy have collab'd with folky, krauty everywhere girl Jane Weaver on one side whilst Welsh Gruff Rhys mini-me H.Hawkline takes up the B side. Heavenly are releasing some great records at the moment so this will be a highly sought after one to add to your collection.  ...view item »

TOY
As We Turn

Toy are such a 7 out of 10 band aren’t they? Their music is not bad. But its not good either. It hovers around the 7 zone, no more, no less. They’ve moved on a bit on their most recent album as lead track ‘As We Turn’ demonstrates, its a sighing 60’s influenced piece of off-kilter pop somewhere betwixt ...view item »

TOY
Lose My Way

Christ is this what Toy sound like? It’s ‘80s style raincoat indie - not bad, but with all the hype I was really expecting something good. The tune kind of grows as it plods on. A lot of Ech...view item »

TOY
Join The Dots

I must be honest here and say that although their early singles were neat pieces of motorik ethereal rock I never quite gelled with their self-titled full length so I wasn't expecting much from this. 'A follow up, already?" I bleated in astonishment on uncovering this in the pile. It takes a good band to build on the promise of a much-hy...view item »


TOY
Make It Mine

It concerns me that Toy are so hyped, are people hearing something that is just inaudible to my ears? Do their songs grow on you? Do you just start to ignore the lethargic production, flat-ish singing, forgettable songs? They are also one of those bands who so...view item »

TOY
Dead & Gone

Another limited outing for this latest buzz band on the block before their debut album lands. Not gonna rant on about this teaser twelve much as we’ve already described their sound which falls somewhere in a motorik House Of Love territory with a spot of Appliance. They rely a lot on min...view item »

Toy

After a bunch of sold out singles and mucho hype the debut Toy album has landed on our shores courtesy of Heavenly who I’m sure are hoping it sells a bucketload. I guess that goes without say...view item »

TOY
Motoring

Apparently this band contain ex-members of the there-one-minute-gone-the-next Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong, a band so ridiculously monikered they were thrown onto the “new wave of Britpop” dump even before their...view item »

TOY
T o y

Mental record alert. We had a strange 7" in a while back by Toy & now there's a full length album of the most gibbering 'merrie melodies' you could wish for. Yes, this is the soundtrack to that never ending cartoon in yer head - You wake up every morning & watch this here dayglo animated romp before realising it's yr life ma...view item »
