Last year, after reunited Bay Area rockers One Man Army released a four-track EP, She's an Alarm, frontman Jack Dalrymple found himself with a handful of other songs that he liked, though they didn't fit his old band's vibe. So he enlisted the help of fellow One Man Army member Brandon Pollack, as well as Swingin' Utters bassist Miles Peck, and the trio began demoing the cuts. Dubbing themselves ToyGuitar, and rounding out their lineup with Danielle Agnew, the band is now set to release an EP October 15th on Adeline records.

ToyGuitar Share the Love on 'Words Between Us' 

The four-track release is a rapid sprint of piston-pumping punk that opens with the rushing, crunchy "Worlds Between Us." On "She's an Alarm" and "Shoot the Piano Player," the band shows off their knack for prickly Strokes-like riffs and fierce, barebones tracks that don't sacrifice dynamics, while Dalrymple peddles sun-drenched angst on "Tangled Up."

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
