I’m currently giving This Is The Kit a spin, and will also check out Broken Social Scene’s new album at some point.
But for me, this week will mainly be listening to Flotation Toy Warning’s new album The Machine That Made Us. They’ve only released one album previously, way back in 2004. Looking at my geeky spreadsheet I discovered them in 2005 via Pitchfork (gosh, it’s been so long since I’ve checked there/found music from there). Anyhow, their first album is still played lots by me.
They have a sticker on the front cover obviously trying to suck people in: “The quirkiness of the Flaming Lips, a bit of Grandaddy’s americana and the glitchyside of Sparklehorse”, which doesn’t sound too wrong, although the voice is a lot deeper. Maybe they sort of sound like how I’d like Midlake to sound.
