"Observations" from Melted Toys
Melted Toys makes the kind of psychedelic pop that reminds of of the times when I am not fully awake and not actually asleep. Colors are bright, but lines indistinct. Seemingly brilliant ideas float into focus but retreat to some elusive plane when I am fully awake. It is intimate, familiar and very satisfying. The only complaint I can have is that Melted Toys hasn't been very active of late. Happily, that flaw will be rectified on July 15, when the San Francisco quartet releases their self-titled debut album via Underwater Peoples. You can sample its delights with the dreamy summer jam "Observations".
Melted Toys are Daniel Rosado, Steven Harkins, Brian Wakefield, and Ole Haarstad.
