Album Review

Toe 2000 – “Toe 2000 ” – [Truckstop Records]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   A Library, CD

Chicago cross-pollination. Lab rock meets
Kraut rock meets ?’?. Adding Osaka-mama,
blues belle Yoko is intriguing; a sultry
slur, slipping in and out of Japanese/
English adds a welcome warmth. Not Emi
demi-semi-quivering sexiness, but it’s
nice to have a human passenger on this
future-sonic-subway even if she’s not on
every track. A more active Jeff Parker
would be cool too methinks, check #9
and #6 (akin to Dead Man sdtk). Big
ballooning bass sort of (Jah) Wobbled
my weebelos the wrong way in parts here.
