The needle falls barely an inch, and with a fuzzy click finds it’s groove. A warm and uplifting journey gently spiralling through life’s absurdities, interweaving the singular poetic voice of Toby Thompson with some outrageously good songs. Experience lovingly crafted musings on everything from black coffee to Bossa nova; from the delicious pain of falling in love with a tigress, right through to the mystical appeal of lonesome rural sunsets. Vinyl’s unmistakeable allure provides the perfect new setting for this uniquely musical and enigmatic poet. 'Toby Thompson is the future' (Kate Tempest).
