Flotation Toy Warning "Losing Carolina; for Dursky"

Being pretentious is not always a bad thing. Just look at Radiohead, they're pretentious as fuck and everybody loves them. Flotation Toy Warning come from a slightly different school of pretentiousness. See, the band members claim to be arctic explorers and historians from the 19th century. So I guess that dictates them as the CRAZY sort of pretentious.

However, Flotation Toy Warning's music can border on the transcendent at times. The London based band's debut record, 'Bluffer's Guide To The Flight Deck', is chock full of soaring melodies and floating, Sigur Ros-like dream translations. Perhaps while the band's members were wrestling polar bears and "doing science" in the arctic, they saw the face of god there as well, and decided to write music about it. Or perhaps they're just 'i'm-so-much-better-than-you' art students dicking around while cashing in their trust funds. Beats me. You make the Beach MTV call!
