Hm, so I got tired of waiting for a suitable music video for this song to show up so I took it upon myself to cut one using a meshed set of selected vignettes from one of my favorite obscure psychedelic czech new wave films. Somehow I feel like this edit has more of a cohesive narrative than the movie did. hah.
No Joy – Pacific Pride
I caught these girls live a few months ago and was completely blown away by how good they sounded. Equal parts Cobain and Shields in terms of raw conjured live energy but really truly in their own unique headspace. They easily rocked harder than any dudes I’ve seen play live in quite awhile. It was also refreshing to see them perform because it seemed pretty free of any posturing. I heard a lot of mixed reviews about their live set before but I think that’s usually a good sign more often than not. I think that often when a band emerges and people have extremely polarized opinions one way or the other, the band is usually tapping into something new and less accessible and the early dismissers always try and play catch up later on.
