I’ve had this post sitting in my drafts since May. And I haven’t posted since November. Highly questionable. But a new year is upon us and onto great music even if it is no longer that new.
The Joy Formidable are awesome. They are one of those bands that ends up on a lot of mixes from other people and I always stop to check who that awesome Stars-like band is that is playing in my car or headphones. But what really sealed the deal for me was their song ‘Endtapes’ which is featured on the best compilation of music a crappy film has ever seen. (Seriously. Aqualung? Bon Iver and St. Vincent? Amazing curation) After that it was only a matter of time before ‘Whirring’ got into heavy rotation. Enjoy!
