No Joy
Wait To Pleasure - MEXICAN SUMMER
FILTER Grade: 84%

By Paula Mejia on April 25, 2013


No Joy

A certain pent-up aggression unleashes itself, cathartic and unrestrained, in No Joy’s third release Wait To Pleasure. The Montreal female three-piece shreds guitars and any preconceived sense of sweetness alike, evidenced by the gun-toting “E,” Wait To Pleasure’s throbbing, dissonant opener, bleeding into the lapping echoes of “Hare Tarot Lies.” Textured as it comes, the album drips with heady shoegaze, and meaty bass lines prevail in a melodic, rewarding sonic endeavor.
