Guerilla Toss: Twisted Crystal

Analog synthesizers give tangible life to the works of Guerilla Toss. Whether it be the sound of a rocket ship, a kitten-with-a-wah, distorted dolphins, or a clavichord made out of honey-baked ham, the band consistently finds new ways to bring together the many ideas that combine to shape each new batch of art-rock puzzle pieces. Twisted Crystal, Guerilla Toss' new LP, feels more personal than ever for the band. Angular yet irresistibly catchy, this collection of pop songs pulls influence from powerful groups like The Slits, ESG, Gina X, and early Madonna, with sing-speak vocals from Kassie Carlson nodding to legendary artists like Laurie Anderson, Grace Jones, and Lizzy Mercier Descloux - combining this all into a twisted, crystalline concoction.

Guerilla Toss: GT Ultra

GT Ultra is the second full length album by Guerilla Toss on DFA Records. The album demonstrates a remarkable shift in sound, musicianship and songwriting, without ever giving up the unhinged quality that made their earlier recordings so exciting. It is a dream state record for sure, filled with an insistence to "hydrate, gyrate, think straight, no weight", all the while under the influence of golden beams of orange sunshine, glimmering glitter and kaleidoscopic bursts.

Guerilla Toss: Flood Dosed

Flood Dosed was DFA's first release from the incomparable New York-via-Boston Guerilla Toss. Originally released only on cassette and digitally, Flood Dosed is now available on vinyl for the first time. It now includes a bonus vinyl exclusive track "Teacher Speaks" which was recorded in the same sessions as the rest of the EP.

Guerilla Toss have lived by (admitted fan/supporter) Henry Rollins "Get in the Van"-style promotion; touring extensively around the USA, Canada, and Europe since their inception in 2011. They played pigsties, punk houses, liberal arts colleges, and the occasional opening slot for iconic bands such as Mission of Burma, Merzbow, & Black Dice. Recently, the band affixed a Grateful Dead "steal yr face" decal to the bumper of their well-traveled minivan - a signifier of their commitment to unique setlists and unpredictable surprises at each and every performance.

Guerilla Toss have also been prolific recording and releasing multiple releases on vinyl, tape, and CD on respected underground labels labels such as Feeding Tube, John Zorn's TZADIK, NNA Tapes, Infinity Cat and as well as their most recent full-length LP Eraser Stargazer for DFA in the spring of 2016.

Giant Claw VS Guerilla Toss is the remix/version/reworking of Guerilla Toss' music, a musical creation mixed, manipulated and imagined through the prism of ideas that is Giant Claw (Orange Milk Records). Giant Claw is also known to many as Keith Rankin, an in-demand artist / graphic designer, tied to Guerilla Toss by illustrating the bold LP images from their DFA debut LP Eraser Stargazer, as well as the cover for this very release. Giant Claw takes five prime Guerilla Toss tracks and zaps them with his wild blend of elastic 808 rhythms, merging the crazy R&B vocal sample style he is known for with Kassie's sing/shout rapid-fire poetic delivery. It is a unique formula and it sees Giant Claw find a surprising elements or two or three within all five "versions". The through-line that pulls all tracks together is the faithful analog stems VS MIDI triggered fully digital sounds, all clashing together into a glorious groove.

Guerilla Toss: Eraser Stargazer

Ecstatic, vital, and brilliantly unhinged, Guerilla Toss promotes positive energy and twisted spirituality through the less-traveled path of brutal, intelligent, live rock and roll dance music. Like a hurricane of healing bliss, a Guerilla Toss concert is more of a ritual than a performance. It is the unique pairing of musical voices and backgrounds that makes Guerilla Toss such a special party band. But they are more than that - GT gets real when you pay close attention. Their music is inspired by both tragedy and beauty, drug addiction/mental illness and the re-birth of the soul through spiritual practice and psychedelic drug healing - helping the listener overcome these mind-fuck hardships.
