Joyce Manor - S/T
Vocally, there's that gritty, almost off key sound that let's you know this is not for the masses persay (the vocals on "Leather Jacket" and "Ashtray Petting Zoo" remind me of "Reinventing Axl Rose"-era Against Me). There's a good amount of tempo changing here between songs. They do the mid tempo speed best as it seems to work well with their melodic harmonies. By the time I got to "Famous Friend" I had made up my mind that this was something I was probably going to be listening to on a regular basis well after this review.
Some very good stuff here, with some catchy hooks that will get stuck in your head.
Take a listen here.
