  • joy as a toy: mourning mountains
        (2017, cd, bel, humpty dumpty records)
Joy As A toy is Gil Mortio (bass), Clément Nourry (guitar) and Jean-Philippe De Gheest (drums). "Mourning Mountains" is the trio's third album and it sounds really good. I really need to check out their previous albums. With album titles like "Valparaiso" and "Dead Like A Dodo", this can't go wrong.

You might be familiar with some of Gil Mortio's musical output as he is/was part of Kings Of Belgium with Pierre Vervloesem. Gil also performed and recorded with Bruno Vansina and with Teun Verbruggen on various occasions.

Anyway, "Mourning Mountains".
The album presents a beautiful mix of pop, rock, exotica and cinematic soundscapes.
"Mourning Mountains" has 8 tracks and all of them are impressive.

Check them out, and find the theremin !!

The band is playing in and around Brussels and even in Antwerp the next month, so check your calendar.
