new review for easy tapes label

Soupy stupors of electro drones bumble along groggy whirrl waves as Joy and Revolution ride these sleepy jams for label fresh to the digital block, Easy Tapes.

“Do You Love Me (You Love Me)” drags romance to the druggy dungeon of hypnosynth, enrapturing lovers with laser drones, glowing keys, and plodding rhythm hot and heavy for a nap.
The side effects of taking “Sedative” aurally include whooshy waterfalls of aqueous keys, daze inducing vocals, and creeping sensations of tranquility tinkling throughout the limbs. Listener’s pleasure is advised.

'1 2 3 just kiss me' song review

When the concept of Suicide Acolytes come up, the spectre of A.R.E. Weapons lingers; my cortex flickering with fond memories of ‘swearing is cool!’ rich kids playing ‘street gang’ dress-ups. Joy and Revolution are Suicide Acolytes of a sweeter stripe; sounding like stoned, short-circuiting androids as they descend into a mechanical fug of hazed out drum-machine flickers, spasms of deflated synth, and babbled incantations repeated, ad nauseum, in search of the eternal. “1 2 3 Just Kiss Me” is barely past two minutes long, but Joy and Revolution could jam on this forever; their mantra’s brainless meditation on the sexting era the hook that clears your head, and takes the turn towards transcendence.

outside our window...

footprints in the snow carry our memories
life retraces in our imaginations
quick flashes along the frozen trails
stuck in a time warp
surrounded by stillness
body wrapped in clothes
slowly melting into the present
