No Joy – More Faithful

The album bears the fruits of a band that has refined its work ethic in the gulf of time between recording sessions. The outcome – a juxtaposition of unrest and calm, beauty and chaos, truth and fantasy, in the throes of maxed-out amps and hair-whipping guitar goddess rock music – is as unwavering as ever. Where No Joy’s last album, Wait To Pleasure balanced textural differences with the freewheeling novelty of the studio environment, More Faithful documents a much more rigorous creative process and performance. For More Faithful No Joy worked with musician and producer Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Chairlift, Lansing-Dreiden). Recording was split between tracking at Brooklyn studio Gary’s Electric and an old farmhouse in Costa Rica. In this rural Costa Rican setting, Elbrecht created a makeshift but nurturing studio environment where he and No Joy did the mixing, overdubs and cut vocals for 12 hours a day. Repairing themselves to an isolated environment strengthened No Joy’s regimented approach to making a record that satisfied their vision. There is no question that More Faithful is the most forward, throttling record No Joy has made, taking their sound to the wall in a brazen display of beauty-laced power. At times More Faithful is heavier than anything they’ve done yet, while also their fastest – riffs shooting upward in discord and drifting down in angelic harmonies.

 


Florence & The Machine – How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’ is the brand new album from Brit and Grammy Award winning multi-platinum selling musical artist Florence + The Machine. A collection of songs, written and recorded over the past 12 months. Produced by Markus Dravs (Björk, Arcade Fire, Coldplay) the third album by Florence & The Machine is live-sounding, tune-rich, unhinged in all the right places and powerful in all the best ways. In voice and, ultimately, outlook Florence has never sounded better.

 


Swervedriver – I Wasn’t Born To Lose You

One of the finest rock bands ever to grace Creation Records’ roster back in the early 1990s, Oxford band Swervedriver are back with their first album in 18 years! This limited double-vinyl edition adds two bonus tracks to the CD: ‘Dub Wound’ (which was the B-side of ‘Deep Wound’) and the band’s cover of Television’s ‘Days’ (previously the flip of ‘Setting Sun’). The band’s mix of guitar-fuelled energy and forlorn melodies echoed American US acts like Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth while also attracting comparisons with the so-called ‘Shoegaze’ bands. The new album boasts the song ‘Deep Wound’, which the Swervies performed on the Jimmy Fallon Show in the States.
