Album Stream: Toy - Toy

Toy, the long-haired five-piece thrust into the new music spotlight earlier this summer, are now streaming their debut album. The eponymous record drops on Heavenly Recordings next Monday (Septemner 10th), but thanks to some generosity on Soundcloud the part-psychedelic, wholly indie act are letting fans and soon-to-be-converts listen to the album in its entirety now.

They sound a little bit like The Horrors on more drugs, and employ that whole woozy, lazy-voiced aesthetic to its full effect. If you were one of those kids who grew up skulking around campus with their hair in their eyes and Primal Scream or New Order on their headphones, chances are you'll enjoy this. If you weren't one of those kids, give it a try anyway if you enjoyed recent work from Cat's Eyes, My Bloody Valentine and other such moody but richly produced ilk. 

Click here to see the list of their extensive October UK tour, and on one of these links (Amazon, Rough Trade, iTunes, to pre-order the record if you like what you hear.
