Listening Post

The Joy Formidable's latest album The Big Roar couldn't be more aptly titled. This seemingly mild-mannered trio from Wales unleash a sonic blast that sounds like a tour bus crash between My Bloody Valentine and Pantera; in fact, when this song goes off the rails and descends into high speed chaos toward the end, you almost forget you're listening to an alternative act from the UK fronted by a blonde named Ritzy Bryan.

Above it's that single, Whirring; below it's a really powerhouse live performance of A Heavy Abacus.
