Ride the Tempo’s Top Canadian Albums of 2013

No Comments 03 January 2014

It’s one thing to call an album awesome, but what’s the point if they aren’t being listened to on a continuous basis.

These are the albums I haven’t forgotten about since day 1 of their release until the very end of 2013. Continue Reading

Shoegazers No Joy just released a video for “Blue Neck Riviera” from their latest album Wait to Pleasure. What seems like a nice stroll on the beach gets glitchy and colourful.

Release Date: April 23rd, 2013
Label: Mexican Summer

Following up on 2010’s Ghost Blonde, No Joy proved themselves more than just shoegazers with this year’s release of Wait to Pleasure. In fact it’s really hard to be gazing off while listening to this masterpiece in cacophony. Continue Reading

No Joy releases Wait To Pleasure at the end of this month. I just reviewed shoegaze-y Beliefs but judging by No Joy’s “Hare Tarot Lies” they may have some competition in the genre this year.

[Listen] No Joy- Lunar Phobia

Montreal shoegazers No Joy will be releasing the full length follow up to their 2010 Ghost Blonde on April 23rd. It will be called Wait to Pleasure. Judging by this new song called “Lunar Phobia” it’s a lot less fuzzy than it used to be.

Summer always welcomes the shoegaze genre and Montreal’s No Joy is no stranger to the sound. This song comes off an upcoming EP called Negaverse to be released June 19.

Ps. Will be blogging on my iPad and phone for a little while, please let me know if anything isn’t working correctly.

[Listen/Download] No Joy- Heedless

If you follow Best Coast on twitter, you’ve probably heard of her love for Montreal’s blonde girl duo No Joy. Their most recent album Ghost Blonde was released back in November and can be picked up at the Mexican Summer shop. Take a listen to Heedless where you’ll get a taste of the psychedelic world that Best Coast fell for.
