No Joy @ Kung Fu Necktie.

May 15, 2013

NoJoy03Listen to the first two singles off No Joy‘s latest album, Wait to Pleasure, and you’ll see why people describe the four-piece as shoegazey. The songs are fuzzy but dreamy, and California summer-sounding.

At Kung Fu Necktie last night, however, No Joy was loud and full of feedback and distortion. It wasn’t dreamy. It was a mind-scramble of sound, noise-punk masked only by hair.

Lots of hair.

The Montreal band is on tour supporting their fourth album, the first that was recorded in a full-on studio (as opposed to their basement).

Psychic Teens and Cassavetes opened the night.

    Too much feedback and distortion is an understatement, with all the noise why bother even trying to sing. There’s the “wall of sound” but this was more like the “fall of sound”.
