The London five-piece make their NY debut
After a few false starts, it looks like London-based psyche-rockers Toy finally have their visas in hand are ready for their much-anticipated New York debut. Sonically, the five-piece have drawn comparison to German Krautrockers Neu! and shoegaze pioneers Ride, and their two-show area visit is timed to coincide with the North American release of their sophomore LP, Join the Dots. Like their acclaimed 2012 self-titled debut, Join the Dots was recorded mostly live under the direction of Dan Carey with the occasional laser and smoke machine firing. A group poised to blow, you suggest catching their multi-layered goodness when they roll through. Brooklyn psych-rock outfit Spires open.
