Joy Formidable blows my mind


(NOTE: This is a cross post/sample from my new group music tumblr – MUSICWAR! Check it out: http://musicwar.tumblr.com)

The Joy Formidable: “Whirring (Live on KEXP)”

I was fortunate enough to get a few hall passes and enjoy a week of live music as the recent MusicFestNWseeing Eleanor Freidberger, The Kills, Archers of Loaf, Explosions in the Sky, Antlers, and this band, The Joy Formidable who I was looking forward to seeing as they are quite decent.


After seeing them live though, the positively blew my mind, which is why I am posting them live performing an epic shoegaze/feedback drenched version of their usually much-milder-but-still-great “Whirring”. Absolutely impressed with them live and highly recommended. (Witz)
