Top 50 of 2012: No.20: TOY - TOY (Heavenly)
Considering the majority of this band came from Joe Lean & The Jing Jang Jong (no seriously) you would quite rightly expect them to be a) an indie rock band and b) a bit shit, thankfully TOY are neither. TOY are psychedelic-post-shoegaze blissful brilliance, music often fits with moods and this album is definitely for the chilled out, it’s an album to listen to when you are doing nothing else but giving it your full attention. Tracks like ‘My Heart Skips A Beat’ wash over you with beautiful melodies while closing track ‘Kopter’ takes you on a psychedelic journey for nine minutes ending with a squalling wall of freakout noise, this is definitely for fans of bands like Six. By Seven, Spacemen3 and that ilk.
