"The Last Hit" (Wire Tapper edit)

From Will Never Play These Songs Again

Based in Lille, French jazzcore trio Toc are Jeremie Ternoy on Fender Rhodes and Rhodes bass, Peter Orins on drums, and Ivann Cruz on guitar. Toc is a French term for OCD, and the way they tick underlines the obsessive-compulsive nature of their approach to music. “The Last Hit” is taken from their sixth album, which follows Toc’s incursions into northern acoustic (Qeqertarsuatsiaat, 2015) and the Bayou (Air Bump, 2016).,
