No Joy’s Dreamy New Shoegaze Album


No Joy
More Faithful
Mexican Summer

 

Grunge, in the form of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and endless lesser lights, wasn’t the only cool thing happening in rock’n’roll during the ’90s. Shoegaze, as personified by My Bloody Valentine and Lush, also made its mark and has shown remarkable staying power. Witness the Canadian quartet No Joy, whose exciting third album is textbook shoegaze, blending swirling, echoey voices, distorted guitars, and heavenly melodies into one dreamy and alluring package. It’s difficult to determine what singer-guitarist Jasamine White-Gluz and her accomplices want to say, if anything, but the waves of vertigo-inducing sound they generate are the real point. Call it cheap thrills, or high art, or both: In any case, More Faithful will give you a delicious buzz.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
