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-pop isn’t very metal: I’m talking a darker sensibility, the “you will die” in their promo photo, the title of their upcoming full-length Ghost Blonde, the idea of “No Joy” in and of itself. Take “Heedless” from Ghost Blonde. Maybe it’s a play on Sonic Youth’s “Ghost Bitch,” or something.
