MY DISCO 'Little Joy' LP
Garnering increasing acclaim in their native Australia with their first two albums, we are proud to finally present Melbourne trio My Disco's third full-length, the truly brilliant and enigmatic Little Joy. 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, and Little 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. It's the sound of a band using the fewest tools to create the greatest range of possibilities - a record both expansive and minimal, a compressed expression of vast emotions.
