Spread Joy - II [Coke Bottle Clear vinyl] – New LP
Spread Joy are back with their second set, sounding like they're from one of those countries that ain't in America, France, Hong Kong, Ohio or Georgia, but reportedly from the Windy City, sounding like that wind they call the hawk might've blown the cobwebs from the attic of some benzedrine addict on a manic mania Pee Wee Herman pedal around town, only coasting for moments, mostly going for broke from fast to madness, swerving around
Old Polonia, across black top and brick roads. Catch up and grab the fender. -- winch (green noise)
"Spread Joy may as well be their own musical genre. An immediate flavor and mercurial 'Qu'est-ce que c'est?' begin their second album with the 45 second opener "Ow". Coincidentally, the album spins at 45, just like Spread Joy's self-titled 2021 debut. The Chicago group came out of nowhere, mid-pandemic, with a stunning ten track LP on Feel It. Returning to the warm analog environment at Jamdek Recording Co., Spread Joy have truly honed their craft across these 17 minutes and 17 seconds. This is the kind of punk-forward music that is made to be heard and felt, far from the distorted mirror of the web. A group living free, moving at their own speed, and making music that will be remembered - that's Spread Joy, folks!"
