[MP3] Joywave – 88888 MIXTAPE [w/ “Tongues” (feat. KOPPS)]

JOYWAVE - Tongues (feat. KOPPS)

TBE faves Joywave have never got the love they deserved and their latest stuff is as awesome as ever. They have taken a more dancey and electronic slant since “Golden State” and the 77777 Mixtape but damn it sounds good. “Tongues” features fellow Rochester, NY, peeps KOPPS and sounds like they spent a Red Bull fueled night in the studio with Miike Snow. Damn fresh. Their new 88888 Mixtape features other highlight like “London”, a dark and entrancing piece of ghost-glitch that welcomes movement in the darkness. Dive in and download it all free. Then get into the RAC remix of Tongues for even more delicious funk.

[MP3] Joywave – “True Grit”

you should have loved me all the time

♫ Joywave – True Grit

  • Who: The one, the only, Joywave
  • What: Synth laden goodness, like Monarchy, M83
  • Where: Rochester, New York + Facebook / Bandcamp / Amazon
  • When: Koda Vista EP releasing hopefully in March
  • Why: What is there really to say about these guys. If you’ve been around our humble music blog for some time, you know we are down with the fantastic group of guys that is Joywave. Aiming for a darker, more atmospheric feel with “True Grit” they still manage to hit the nail square on the head perfectly. No thumb smashing happening here. Stick around if only for the piano at 2:17; but I’m positive you’ll enjoy the two minutes and sixteen second leading up to it as well.
