Little Joy

My Disco are pleased to announce a brand new album is officially on the horizon. Titled Little Joy, it will be released through Shock on Friday the 22nd of October. As always with Melbourne trio My Disco, the best thing about their new album Little Joy is its weird kind of absence. Ever since their first shows back in 2003, it's like there's been something lacking, a piece missing from the puzzle, but it's a lack so intriguing that it keeps you coming back, trying to work out what's not there. And each time, that lack changes subtly. The set up is still the same – Liam Andrews on bass and vocals, brother Ben Andrews on guitar, and friend Rohan Rebeiro on drums. But each new record sees My Disco refine their essence, removing what most people expect to hear and leaving them something new in its place. The bare bones of a drum beat, a rumbling bass, one repeated phrase and some bursts of feedback add up to a wholly compelling sound world. For their second album Paradise in 2008, My Disco followed their minimalist instincts by recording at Electrical Audio with Steve Albini, the Chicago engineer famous for his stripped back work for everyone from Nirvana to Joanna Newsom. They began in the same way with Little Joy, tracking with Albini, but then changed direction. They returned to Australia to mix the album with Sydney veteran Scott Horscroft, whose resume includes the likes of Silverchair and The Presets. This produced rawness is the heart of Little Joy's success. It's the sound of a band using the fewest tools to create the greatest range of possibilities. It's a record both expansive and minimal, a compressed expression of vast emotions.
