toyGuitar's follow-up to last year's excellent In This Mess is the equally brilliant EP Move Like a Ghost. Over the course of three releases the band has created and perfected a sound that mixes elements of power pop, garage rock, punk, and surf resulting in music that is high energy, catchy as hell, and unique and familiar all at the same time. Singer/guitarist Jack Dalrymple is a masterful songwriter that has been churning out classic tunes for nearly two decades as part of One Man Army, Dead To Me, and Swingin' Utters and now with toyGuitar he's spread his wings even farther showing the world what longtime fans have always know: Dalrymple is a genius. This is the kind of record that should appeal to a wide range of fans from punks to indie rockers to garage rockers to everyone in-between. Hell this should even appeal to the hipster kids that are into all of those bands with the fuzzy guitars that the cool music websites talk about, only this band is actually really good.
