Kicking around the excellent cull.tv, I ran across the video for TOY’s “Left Myself Behind” – a band I hadn’t heard before seeing the video. The video isn’t anything spectacular; everyone kind of looks bored and slightly sweaty, but the song itself is pretty enjoyable. We’ve been through the ringer with bands recreating the pop-centric side of the 1980’s, but there hasn’t been a lot of bands dredging up the krautrock/psychedelic side of the decade. TOY does just that, with a nearly eight-minute swirling jam.
“Left Myself Behind” is available for pre-order on 12″ vinyl, due out in January, and if you’re really interested, you can get the track for free over here.
