No Joy – “Second Spine”

No Joy put out a really enjoyable and fuzzed out sophomore album earlier this year and they're already back with more.

No Joy – “Last Boss”

The bleary Montreal shoegaze band No Joy released their new album Wait To Pleasure a few months ago, and now they'll follow it up next month with an EP called Pastel And Pass Out.

No Joy – “Hare Tarot Lies”

Montreal shoegazers No Joy went to an actual studio to record their new album Wait To Pleasure, and first single "Lunar Phobia" nudged them toward a more synthpoppy sound. But on "Hare Tarot Lies," their latest advance track, they're back in old-school guitar-kaleidoscope territory, bringing a swoony and echo-happy sense of melody. Listen to… More »

Montreal-based shoegaze pop band No Joy have released a new single, "Lunar Phobia," off of their forthcoming album Wait To Pleasure -- their first full-length since 2010's Ghost Blonde.

This week's clips from Arcade Fire, Rokysopp, Simian Mobile Disco, No Joy, and White Lies show off what's possible when your videos don't have to fit particular television formats and time limits.

No Joy – “Heedless”

It sorta makes sense the Best Coast-beloved No Joy fall between Nachtmystium and Pearl Harbor on Mexican Summer's artists page. The Montreal/L.A. duo of Laura Lloyd and Jasamine White-Gluz mention "doom" (along with "psychedelic" and "shoegazer") on their Bandcamp page and have played shows with Harvey Milk and Coalesce, but no, their noise-po… More »
