They say, “The 11-song record was recorded with vintage analogue music toys, according to a press release. At some point before writing for the album began, main Dummy Brad Roberts and producer/album co-writer Stewart Lerman (Antony & the Johnsons, the Roches) apparently became obsessed with the Optigan, a ’70s Mattel toy/instrument, which shaped how the album was written and added a whole new layer to the band’s sound.”
Sounds interesting…. analogue toys! Sounds like something Psyhic TV has kinda done before. Let’s see how it pans out!
