Guerilla Toss Headed to 2018 Falloutfest at The Union< < Back to
On Friday, September 14, NYC-based art rockers Guerilla Toss released their third effort on James Murphy’s DFA Records, Twisted Crystal. The album feels like a nine-track journey, a sort of kaleidoscopic traipse around a colorful, undulating abyss of sound.
From New Age themes delivered with all the tuneful hallmark constraint of kosmische Musik, such as “Walls of the Universe,” to weirdo, dance-able pop with flourishes of New Wave like “Retreat,” to sludgy arena rock guitar splattered amidst chromatic, rippling synths on opener “Magic Is Easy,” Guerilla Toss has crafted a record in 2018 that sounds like an impressive pick from the import bin at a hip record store circa 1981.
