Japan's Toe have been around for a little over a decade now, dominating mathy post-rock. They've released most of their records on their own Machu Picchu label, and this year, Topshelf Records will be reissuing many of them. First up is 2005's The Book About My Idle Plot on a Vague Anxiety, which is due out on August 20. You can take a listen to the LP in its entirety at the bottom of this post.

Toe will be embarking on their first-ever North American tour this fall. That tour finishes off with a performance at Beat Kitchen on October 5. Advance tickets for the Chicago show are on sale now.
