The debut release from the young New Wave pop trio Melted Toys went public yesterday on Underwater Peoples. Here’s more about the release from the UP site, and the track “Come On” from the EP:
Melted Toys Washed & Dried 12″ EP: Melted Toys is Steven Harkins on guitar and vocals, Daniel Rosado on guitar, and Brian Wakefield on bass. The band plays lurid and mischievous pop music via synthetic tones and persistently inspiring guitar riffs. Their music intimates, intimidates, envelops and envigors; they’ve managed to bottle up San Francisco in their songs and we’d like to share it with you.
The prolific (see this mixtape) songwriter Tim Cohen has yet another full-length out — his LP Magic Trick, which had its record release show earlier this month. Cohen’s simultaneously releasing an eight-song bonus EP, Bad Blood, as a 33 1/3-speed double 7-inch. Hear “Don’t Give Up” from the full length:
2/24: Melted Toys with Film School for Noise Pop at Cafe Du Nord
