No Joy – ‘Moon In My Mouth’

no-joy-more-faithful

No Joy have posted their latest creation, a dreamy slacker pop tune with loads of character called ‘Moon In My Mouth’. There’s a fresh interview that’s waaaay more interesting than my paragraph, so perhaps check that out on Rookie. From the impression of the lead single ‘Everything New‘, (and from the album trailer below), it sounds like No Joy have edged toward poppier/happier songs. Albeit only mildly happier! But either way, they’re not the kind of band that repeats material. I expect that ‘More Faithful’ will be another leap for the Montreal four piece.

No Joy – ‘Everything New’

After a few days of social media teasing, Mexican Summer have officially unveiled No Joy‘s new song ‘Everything New’! The Montreal quartet will deliver their third album ‘More Faithful’ on June 8 (EU/EK) and June 9 (USA) – pre-order here. Following the brilliance of their 2013 album ‘Wait To Pleasure’, No Joy once again team up with musician and producer Jorge Elbrecht for the recording, known for his work with Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Chairlift and Violens. The recording sessions were split between Gary’s Electric in Brooklyn, and a farmhouse in Costa Rica! While the presser claims that “At times More Faithful is heavier than anything they’ve done yet”, the single strikes as lighter and less intense, so the wall of noise must be forthcoming! June can’t come quick enough.

Stunning song, stunning video! Seksound present the latest clip from Imandra Lake, the beautiful ‘Kaks vööd’. It’s taken from the ‘Avane’ LP, one of the strongest dream pop albums of last year (download). The Tallinn-based duo teamed up with Joosep Volk (their former Pias Fraus bandmate and drummer), who directed and filmed the video in Soomaa National Park (Estonia).
