No Joy Wait To Pleasure on LP + Download Code
Wait To Pleasure is the product of the Montreal noise-pop band’s ﬁrst foray in a fully-furnished studio environment. Here the band has ﬂourished, delivering their ﬁnest set to date, rooted heavily in shoegaze ripcurls and devastating melody, ﬁnishing sentences whispered long ago with depth, variance and force.
Singer-guitarists Jasamine White-Gluz and Laura Lloyd and drummer Garland Hastings knock down the fence between nostalgia and modernity, chaos and control, in a perfectly-realized effort made to bridge their uncompromised musical pasts with the alarmist tendencies of the present.
Wait To Pleasure found No Joy set loose in Mexican Summer’s studio, Gary’s Electric, for two weeks in 2012, with producer Jorge Elbrecht at the helm. “Our earlier records are purely guitar-based, rock band lineups,” Laura adds, “and with Wait To Pleasure we seized the opportunity to change things up a bit.”
“We play as if the audience isn’t there, and we wouldn’t care if there weren’t anyone in the room at all, other than our band,” Jasamine qualiﬁes. “No matter what, we are making this music for ourselves.” Feel fortunate, then, that we are invited along to listen in, to take what we want out of No Joy’s songs. They’ve gotten everything they wanted already."
