TOEHEADS- A Cruel Winners World LP
The Toeheads are pulverizing Detroit's garage rock scene, and their self-produced record, A Cruel Winner's World, is encased in debauchery, sincerity, and relatability. The dense, jagged lo-fi recordings shake and rattle to the very core; drums like a china cabinet tumbling down a flight of stairs, all being held tightly together by roaring vocal melodies and vehement basslines. This fourth collection of songs (their first 12" record) is equal parts nostalgic and innovative, evoking their tantalizing essence. There is no rhythm or reason for one to forgo a listen.
