WARM TOY MACHINE: Not Tired to Blow: LP

Warm Toy Machine plays bizarre garage rock. A once French, now Belgian band, they are heavily influenced by gritty peers in the Euro rock underground, as well as by grubby U.S. bands like Spider Babies. Simultaneously off-putting and engaging, bands like this are a dime a dozen. Is that a bad thing, though? Familiarly sleazy, Warm Toy Machine is aural comfort food for the perpetually uncomfortable.
