Synopsis

Album Description
The Toulouse aesthetic is concocted of sha-la-la, urban R & B, tinny amps, drum machines, & cocky lyrical punk charm. They sound like Gang of Four, Walter Wanderley, Young Marble Giants and the Jam. Adventure, smarts, distraction, and melodic energy. Not to mention utterly danceable.
 

CD Reviews

A lifelong love affair
05/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A sadness has persisted throughout my life since Toulouse left Chicago for coast. I thought I was free of them but I have since been diagnosed with a rare form of tinitus where instead of a ringing in my ear, all i hear is Checks and Credits, persistently and endlessly. A new sound, indeed! I knew them as Autovoles and loved them as Kitchen Witch: they are Toulouse. Buy this rekkid."
The springtime of my funk!

"Yo! Toulouse forever, or at least for now -- this stuff is NOW, as they used to say, dadio! What I'm getting at is this: Toulouse has the verve and drive of old-skool art-punk and the devil-don't-care elegance of post-modern urban indie-pop. A nearly impossible combination hit upon at random and elaborated with control and vitriol. The best thing since / and maybe the flipside of / Yo La Tengo's latest masterpiece. Hope you feel the same!"
