Stream: Melted Toys, "Always"

This month, Ex-Girls frontman and FADER cover star Christopher Owens is touring in support of his new solo full-length, Lysandre, and he's picked fellow San Francisco-based three-piece Melted Toys to join him on a string of East Coast dates. The band, who released their debut EP on Underwater Peoples in 2011, have an affinity for gooey, effects-heavy pop. For the occasion, they've put together a limited, tour-only cassette, manufactured by Gnar Tapes, which includes unmastered demos from their upcoming LP, previous singles, and their debut 12" in its entirety. Demo track "Always" is weightless— a triumph of wobbly new wave synths, sleazy vocals and balmy, mind-bending guitars.
