At Tuesday night's Independent show with Dominant Legs and Melted Toys, Real Estate pulled together a tighter, more engaging set than they did in the Big Sur woods over the weekend. Hunched over and adoringly strumming, they concluded their Bay Area visit with the three-part harmonies people over the weekend were dying for on "Green River" and "Suburban Beverage." It was a lovely set, but openers Melted Toys won the evening with one of their best performances to date. They unveiled a few new songs that added a little more flavor to their 80s sound, testing out an acoustic guitar [...]

Video: Melted Toys – “Neuzone”

The video for "Neuzone," from SF band Melted Toys, feels a little like the beginning to the world's weirdest and most awesome instructional/training video, and it's a fine compliment to this bubbling synth-pop song off the band's Washed & Dried EP. See them with Real Estate and Dominant Legs at The Independent on August 2nd (8pm, $15).
