When surveying the qualities of The Toy Band last year the MMP was struck by their paper-twixt-bumcheek tight musicianship and dexterous songwriting. Both emerge plentifully with this, their debut LP. Starting with office favourite, Are You Knocking Or Making, Knitted Image is immediately characterised by imaginative pace changes, fantastic instrumentation and sharp lyricism. From there Lily brims with hard-indie rock histrionics, Bartholomew Fair echoes Kinks-esque storytelling, Knockin At The Door rasps like Squeeze fondling Billy Bragg’s temples. Each is a highlight and bewilderingly good. Though not always as immediately enchanting (e.g. The Rookeries), the slower moments also often reward, as with Managing Director, simply because of the spontaneous melodies and attentive composition. It’s really, really hard not to like this
