Label: Tough Love

Today, UK psych rockers TOY announced the release of their fourth album. With the announcement of the new album, the band also released a video for the lead track “Sequence One”. It is a perfect mix of psych and kraut rock. Check it out below.  You can also listen to the two previously released tracks via Bandcamp below as well.

The album is offered in a few different variants, so make sure to check out all your options before you buy. I went with the Tough Love variant that is limited to 300 and comes with a bonus LP of remixes.  Rough Trade has 200 copies on white vinyl that you can buy HERE as well as a ‘Dinked’ version limited to 700 that you can grab from various UK distros like HERE and HERE.  There will also be an indie store exclusive on blue vinyl, limited to 1000.

The Details

TOY have announced details of their new album, Happy In The Hollow, which is released on Friday January 25th 2019. Their fourth album, and their first for new label Tough Love Records, it’s unquestionably their most direct and propulsive album to date. Recorded between their own home tape studios and mixed at Dan Carey’s Studio B in South London, the album was entirely produced and mixed by the band.

The vinyl pressing of the album is available in several different variants - the first, only available via the Tough Love webstore, is on 180gm vinyl, includes a bonus 12" featuring remixes by Sonic Boom and Cosey Fanni Tutti, and is limited to 300 copies. The second, in conjunction with the Dinked indie store collective, is limited to 700 copies on ‘ultra clear’ vinyl, features alternative artwork and a 'secret 7"’. Finally, a third version will be available exclusively from Rough Trade, and features an alternative 'secret 7"’ on 'snow white’ vinyl, limited to 200 copies.
