PMB058: Wind Up Toys (Plone, Toy, Vic Mars, Lullatone, Pascale Comelade, Pierre Bastien, Raymond Scott, Klangverstedet, Felix's Machines)

PMB058: Wind Up ToysThe release of the rather lovely new album by Japanese duo Lullatone (Soundtracks for Everyday Adventures) prompted us to seek out a selection of tracks either made with or inspired by toy instruments, clockwork machines and circuit bent toys. By a spooky coincidence another brand new release also fits into this week's show rather well, that being an album by Felix Thorn who builds his own instruments using wooden piano mechanisms, springs, and solenoids to create what MC Zirconium describes as "Victorian Drum and Bass".
