Toy announces 2014 US Tour

TOY announces US Tour

I’m listening to TOY’s “Join The Dots” album and it’s truly masterful. I can usually find something wrong with even the music and bands I love, but this album may be perfection. If you don’t believe me, I encourage you to listen to the entire album here.

TOY have just announced a 2014 US Tour, and while it breaks my heart that Denver isn’t represented in the cities that they are visiting, I am really glad to know that somewhere in the world (Los Angeles to be specific) an audience will be treated to TOY and The Horrors on the same night. If you live in LA and you skip this, fucking move away from there – because what’s the point? Find the tour dates below.

Apr 28 – Seattle, WA – The Crocodile
Apr 29 – Portland, CA – Doug Fir
Apr 30 – San Francisco, CA – The Chapel
May 1 – Los Angeles, CA – The First Unitarian Church (SOLD OUT) *
May 4 – Austin, TX – Austin Psych Fest
May 5 – Brooklyn, NY – Baby’s All Right
May 6 – New York, NY – Mercury Lounge

* – w/ The Horrors

Danger Radio Podcast Episode 179

Episode 179 – Danger Radio Podcast with Tyler Jacobson and Jake Ryan


What’s this? A new episode? With both Tyler and Jake? Has it really been so close to a year since that happened? Will it be this way on the regular? Who can say? (So many questions…. so many god damn questions…. )

Erica Beegle is a wonderful person with a T.Rex tattoo on her arm – she also tends bar at the Meadowlark and is a large reason that we bring Casual there more often than not –  on the irregular basis when we do it. When asked what she wanted for her birthday, she said she wanted her party to be Tyler and Jake playing one of our “Casual” sets. How could we say no?

Picture a living room – lights off, strobes on,  trippy projections occupying a portion of wall above a lit fireplace, a makeshift DJ booth… these are the sounds of those moments…. 5 – 6 hours deep – so we’ll have at least a few podcasts to work through the evening. Here’s the first of those episodes – starting at the top of the evening.

Slow Life – Super Furry Animals
Killing of a Flash Boy – Suede
Three Girl Rhumba – Wire
The Classical – The Fall
Digital – Joy Division
Contact – Godzuki
Double Rocker – Stereolab
Impact – Saloon

Anybody Silent – Miniatures
See You – The History of Apple Pie
What You Were – The Drums
All I Wanna Do – Splashh
Diamonds in Ashes – Sulk
Weekender – Flowered Up
Mad Cyril – Happy Mondays

New album details and video from The Horrors

Recorded over 15 months in the band’s east London studio-laboratory-bunker with co-producer Craig Silvey (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire, The National), Luminous is the follow-up to the band’s 2007 debut Strange House, the Mercury-nominated Primary Colours (2009), and the critically-acclaimed Skying (2011) – a record that entered the charts the UK charts at number five, featured prominently in the end-of-year magazine/newspaper polls, and was anointed NME’s Album Of The Year. Luminous is trailed by “I See You,” which received its first broadcast earlier today on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic. The seven-and-half-minute synth anthem was recently unveiled at The Fly Awards in London, where The Horrors were joined onstage by Thurston Moore. Luminous is out on May 6. The track listing is: Chasing Shadows First Day Of Spring So Now You Know In and Out Of Sight Jealous Sun Falling Star I See You Change Your Mind Mine and Yours Sleepwalk


Joe Strummer is dead. Long live Joe Strummer.

I was driving into work on Morrison road to Alameda, listening to talk radio. The CBS newscast was running through the top headlines – then the announcer said “They called him ‘Strummer’….” followed by an announcement of the death of Joe Strummer. A hero of mine and an icon of strength that this soft generation of religious, bearded pseudo folk singers will never adopt nor replace – because, as a generation, they aren’t in touch with what their own strength and anger can do when combined together. When they’ve been systematically degraded, they choose to accept a stipend from their parents or work for pennies rather than demanding jobs and wages and a future that rewards them for contributing. Rather than fighting, they’ve chosen passive acceptance. History is repeating but it’s a world where Joe Strummer is dead.

“Let fury have the hour. Anger can be power – to know that you can use it.”

Long live Joe Strummer!

(And let’s pretend he never worked with Long Beach Dub All-Stars.)
