The Stranger's "Band of the Week"
Take a few minutes of your day to check out this weeks Band of the Week, Joy Wants Eternity.
Their songs are lush, atmospheric soundscapes reminiscent of Mogwais more beautiful and melodic moments. But they also obviously find inspiration in My Bloody Valentine.
Decoymusic.com review of "must you smash your ears."
".The EP is astounding, the title seems to invite you to interpret the music visually. Nonetheless I did try to imagine what could be happening and, to me, the music conjured up the scene from Bambi where his mother dies. Except instead of being shot shes hit by a jumbo-jet, oh and it was all in space. 4/5"
"Must You Smash Your Ears Before You Learn to Listen With Your Eyes" is a chilling recounting of everything that is going right in the post-rock world.

".Their ambient sound unfurls comfortably, layering keyboard melodies over amber guitar riffs and astral drones, similar to Kinski's lighter moments or Slowdive's wordless sprawls"

"Epic, cinematic, dynamic and a bunch of other -ics, but never icky. Highly recommended." --

".The positives definitely outweigh the negatives on Joy Wants Eternity's debut performance. The band is able to tell a good story using only music and a vision. The album, for the most part, is as cohesive as anything you'll pick up in the bins of your local record establishment. There's a passion exuding from each and every one of these songs, making it impossible not to be infected with JWE's spirit and vigor"
