Spread the love

European / UK / US version of last year’s album from this Australian band which features former members of Clann Zu. “Joy” is a follow-up to their 2008 “Paradise” LP and was recorded at Electrical Studios in Chicago with Steve Albini.

As always with My Disco, the most fascinating and unique element to their sound is space – long, deep, sometimes scary space. Their defiance of rock music’s time-worn tropes is what defines them, andLittle Joy explores and expands on that concept, stretching a naked few instruments to transform short blasts into heavy, rhythmic, meditative body music. The bare bones of a drum beat, a rumbling bass, one repeated phrase and some bursts of feedback add up to a wholly compelling world of sounds between sounds. Shards of vaguely recognizable post-punk riffs bond pounding, euphoric rhythms to hypnotic, almost psychedelic vocal mantras.
