Toy – ‘As We Turn’

toy-join-the-dots-album-cover-artwork-400x400

Toy‘s latest record ‘Join The Dots’ was touted by Rough Trade as “56 minutes of sprawling Kraut pop, late 80’s Creation Records and feedback driven psychosis. It’s darker, urgent and relentless. Another masterpiece.” The psych rockers have made a big footprint on British rock since forming in 2010. And today Nylon Mag premiered their latest video ‘As We Turn’. It’s predictably trippy (60s style) but nonetheless great! ‘Join The Dots’ is out now via Heavenly Recordings.

Towns – ‘Marbles’

Howling Owl Records will deliver Town‘s debut full length ‘Get By’ on June 2 (pre-order). The Bristol foursome have unveiled the psych rocking second single ‘Marbles’ just to get you in the mood! It was several years ago we first laid ears on Towns, namely the shoegazey ‘Mirror Ghost‘ from their ‘Sleepwalking’ EP. However their latest is a far more energized offering, with colourful vocal hooks to grab hold of. Brits can catch Towns live on tour next month (see dates).
