‘SONGS OF CONSUMPTION’ – Imposing Covers Album By British Psych Rockers TOY…

Old and new albums to make your day

4 April 2020

Band: TOY (Brighton, UK)

Album: SONGS OF CONSUMPTION – a collection of eight covers of amazing songs by legendary artists such as The Stooges, Soft Cell, The Troggs, Serge & Charlotte Gainsbourg
and Pet Shop Boys

Released: 15 November 2019

What the band says: ” ‘Songs of Consumption’ sonically is a continuation and development
of the themes conceived on ‘Happy In The Hollow
(note: Toy’s fourth proper LP released last January) and it will show people where we are going towards musically. The DIY approach was explored further utilizing more of the electronic elements that we touched upon before. Drum machines, stripped down arrangements and rudimentary production give a primitive sound that we thought suited the choice of songs. Some of the songs have very big sounding production, so we wanted to experiment with them by going in a different direction.

What TUTV! says: The imposing splendor of this covers LP lays in the airy, spot-on,
no special effects balance of the sound showing the real heart and soul of each and every track. The pristine instrumentation, Tom Dougall‘s wistful and fragile vocals, the dismantled orchestration and untarnished production give the songs a scintillating tone that causes spine-tingling and glowing joy.
