Hardcore Girls = Night Of Joy

The cool cats over at Hot Congress Records have recently put out the debut album for Colorado spazzniks Night of Joy, Hardcore Girls Are A Hoax. It's a frenetic listen, cramming twelve tracks, with names like 'Cool Runnings', 'Marge Simpson' and 'John Candy', in under 25 minutes. The trio sound a bit like the spastic energy of Deerhoof and lo-fi punk whimsy of Trash Kit if harnessed by a bunch of gutter punks headed by a safety-pin-riddled Lydia Lunch. What? Really, Valerie Franz's vocals has the right balance of grit and gravel, whilst the band pendulums between angsty about-turns and weightless whimsy. Bree Davies' bass is so awesomely chunky, whilst Fez Garcia is electric behind the skins. Exciting album from an exciting band. Check em out now.
