Previous reviews:

At once fascinating and bizarre, Flotation Toy Warning combine traditional folk instruments, murky breakbeats and a hyper-appealing pick-and-mix vocal style in their captivating sonic stew.” Rock Sound

The quirkiness of The Flaming Lips with a bit of Granddaddy Americana and the production values of Mercury Rev circa ‘Deserter’s Songs’, left to stew in its own dolor just long enough to turn gently maudlin and you have some idea what flying machine test pilots and quirky inventors get up to when they aren’t flying or inventing things.
