Marvelous Toy at the Silver Lake Jubilee, Saturday, May 21st, 2011

 Unfortunately, I arrived a little bit too late for Marvelous Toy’s set at the Silver Lake Jubilee, and got to catch three of their last songs. But I could hear their joyous outbursts of keyboard and energetic rhythms when I was entering the festival.

They have catchy tunes, driven by that pounding keyboard played by Jordan Hudock, mixed with a charming xylophone played by Ny Lee, and these determined endearing vocals à la Billy Joel meets Okkervil River.

Their songs are instantaneously recognizable with their in-your-face delivery, furious beats quite hard to categorize, but that’s the beauty of it! I was wondering, is this one of these LA bands, which has been able to absorb many different influences and create its new indie-country-rock sound?
