Featured Stream: Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys

Posted by - 11:39 AM on 06/11/10
Perhaps my favorite part about working for this site is that I get to expose people to bands they may otherwise never hear, regardless of genre. Today I introduce to you Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys. Head over to the band's AP.net profile to stream their new album, Steam Ship Killers. I'd love to describe it to you, but they are the kind of band that is so unique that you have to hear them and form your own opinions. If you dig it, pick up a physical copy here or a digital here. Also do yourself a favor and see them live if you have the chance; they are one of my favorite bands to watch.

We are a musical alchemy, fingering the rabbit hole of performance art. With their toys and voices in and out they create a death- folk, texture-core, organic industrial experience.

Thanks for streaming and promoting us! We just got done with a GREAT tour!

The FANS are our label! unlike many singed bands we are friends with and toured with we actually MADE MONEY on tour! whoooot

People were so kind, feeding us, housing us coming to shows and buying tons of merch - this job is THE BEST JOB one can have!

We're going out again in September then over seas again (3rd European tour with a couple stops in Japan thrown in)

thank you thank you thank you!!!

Love and tentacles
