album: Toucans – s/t

toucans

Following on from his tape, Welcome to Lovers House, the multi-talented Sheffield Adam John Humphrey has compiled 11 songs for his new self-titled album.

Toucans is quite simple in nature and as you can no doubt guessed – the buildings blocks start with a few short strums on the guitar. In some cases, a casio keyboard is added or a faint kick drum, and that’s about it. Those that irk at things being too minimal, will be won over by Adam’s sparse and surprising songwriting that help turn what, on the face of it could deemed ‘just another background-noise bedroom recording‘ to something with serious substance and style.
