Collecting krautrock grooves, ’70s electronica and oddball pop, Dublin outfit Tiny Magnetic Pets – named after the Japanese collectable toy – release their new album Deluxe / Debris on August 25 through Happy Robots Records. This follows up on their 2009 debut, Return of The Tiny Magnetic Pets and two EPs.

Sounded at times like a prime-era William Orbit electronic pop production, featuring the kosmische space race synth sounds of the likes of Harmonia and Neu! – incidentally, the album features two collaborations with Kraftwerk’s Wolfgang Flür. Flür isn’t the only synth-pop fan either, with the band having built support from members of Visage & OMD, as well as Neu!’s Michael Rother.
