Gizmodgery was first released in the year 2000, and it sounds at least as fresh now. Self are quite rightly proud of having recorded the whole of this LP with... toy instruments designed for children! The album sounds remarkably developed with that in mind, though it certainly has an infant’s joy as well. Reissued on blue vinyl by El Camino.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 1st March 2018
Imagine Beck, let loose in the toy store from the movie Big with Tom Hanks and you can get an idea of what kind of music to expect from Gizmodgery, by Self. On Gizmodgery you're taken on a sugary pop ride with abrasive noises scattered among the landscape like road signs along a stretch of American highway. Instead of just providing entertaining distractions the noises become seamless parts of the scenery. A feature that makes Self's fifth album unique is the fact that every note produced on the album was made with a toy instrument.
