Lerloons – Toys

Today we’ll make a jarring transition from yesterday’s Pop Offerings into something on the sinister side with a track that could have worked as the soundtrack for a slew of apocalyptic 70s sci-fi thrillers(e.g. Logan’s Run), this is a piece from Irish artist Lerloons titled “Toys” (not to be confused with the 90s movie featuring a Robin Williams cameo).  Beginning with a tinny, rattling sound which feels like a child vainly searching for meaning in its plastic playthings, the nightmare commences with metallic, Forbidden Planet caliber dissonance containing what sound like reversed sampled guitar lines.
