No Joy share “Moon in my Mouth” from their new album More Faithful out June 9th on Mexican Summer and Arts & Crafts.
More Faithful is No Joy’s third full-length for Mexican Summer. Throughout the album, singer / guitarist Jasamine White-Gluz, guitarist Laura Lloyd, drummer Garland Hastings, and bassist Michael Farsky, (formerly of Dirty Beaches’ live band) push themselves to new peaks of intensity.
For More Faithful, No Joy worked with musician and producer Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Chairlift, Lansing- Dreiden, Violens). Recording was split between tracking at Brooklyn studio Gary’s Electric and an old farmhouse in Costa Rica.
In this rural Costa Rican setting, Elbrecht created a makeshift but nurturing studio environment where he and No Joy did the mixing, overdubs, and cut vocals for 12 hours a day. Repairing themselves to an isolated environment strengthened No Joy’s regimented approach to making a record that satisfied their vision.
