Current Buns No.7
Donated to my poor collection by EBP (nice review by the same here), the new album by Norwegian/UK duo Toy is a big hit on the iPod right about now. It's all rinky dink toytown electronica, but somehow manages to be hugely intricate, quite overpowering in places and wildly effervescent. How can you resist a record that has titles like "Rabbit Pushing Mower"?
Answer: you can't.
However it DOES kinda run out of steam by track 5. In olden days they would have been a mighty singles act, and there's no shame in that. But I get the feeling that SO much work went into those first 4 or 5 tracks that the impetus ran out...take longer next time boys, or make it an EP.
