back in stock. no joy are laura lloyd and jasamine white-gluz. divided geographically between montreal and la, yet together in musical minds these two girls create songs soaked in the haze, layered heavy and drawing influence on the brashness of early sst bands. the group creates a maelstrom of melody out of both, with a layered, fuzzy approach that incorporates big, clean riffage, anonymous vocals hiding in the background, and a considerable churn across memorable four-minute pop songs. there's a great deal more structure in their work than is found in many of their contemporaries, and their contemplative song structures work in favour to this approach. it's the perennial box of chocolates filled with razor wire, but even the most fastidious of modern music archaeologists won't see this one coming.
