My Disco: Wrapped Coast b/w All I Can Do
Melbourne, Australia's most enigmatic trio return with a brain-bending slice of bleak mantra-rock that only they can make inexplicably addictive. Coupled with two new jams are a pair of remixes from like-minded friends and world-renowned artists Justin K Broadrick (Jesu, Godflesh), andFactory Floor (DFA). Picking up where they left off on last year's sensational Little Joy, "Wrapped Coast" is tribal post-punk clatter at its finest, like a slightly deranged bastard spawn of Boredoms and Mission of Burma. The beat has clear nods to late night dance and debauchery, making Factory Floor's "The Michael Cliffe House Remix" a logical extension of the original. Four songs pushing a half hour in length on a limited-edition vinyl 12" ? this is how My Disco do. This vinyl-only release is strictly limited to 1,000 copies, and includes a free MP3 download code featuring a bonus alternate remix by Justin K Broadrick.
My Disco: Little Joy
Garnering increasing acclaim in their native Australia with their first two albums, we are proud to finally present Melbourne trio My Disco's third full-length, the truly brilliant and enigmatic Little Joy. As always with My Disco, the most fascinating and unique element to their sound is space ? long, deep, sometimes scary space. Their defiance of rock music's time-worn tropes is what defines them, and Little Joy explores and expands on that concept, stretching a naked few instruments to transform short blasts into heavy, rhythmic, meditative body music. The bare bones of a drum beat, a rumbling bass, one repeated phrase and some bursts of feedback add up to a wholly compelling world of sounds between sounds. Shards of vaguely recognizable post- punk riffs fuse pounding, euphoric rhythms to hypnotic, almost psychedelic vocal mantras. This unlikely marriage is at the heart of Little Joy's success. It's the sound of a band using the fewest tools to create the greatest range of possibilities ? a record both expansive and minimal, a compressed expression of vast emotions.
