Loves You the Most
The Joy Bus Loves You the Most, the bands third release, is a mix of swirling shoegaze and noisy post punk with a psychedelic twist. It sounds like Helmet and My Bloody Valentine got in a fight and then decided to have a party afterwards. Arty Post Punk without the pretension. Along the same lines as bands like Ride, At the Drive In, Fugazi, Cave In, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. The Joy Bus is a Indie/Post-Punk/Shoegaze/Thrash/Garage/Rock band from Austin Texas. Big hazy guitars waver from blasting pecussion held together with smooth melodic vocals. It's a throwback to the big guitars and noisy melodies of shoegaze bands with the power of blasting punk rock. It's a familiar sound you just can't place. 'The Joy Bus has crafted the equivalent of a rock and roll tornado - energetic music that spirals into itself without implosion. It is energy without end.' -Brian Tucker, Bootleg Magazine 'With their thrashing drums, pretty melodies and layered effects on vocal and guitars, they sound like a mix of My Bloody Valentine and Helmet.' -Jesse Hughey, Dallas Observer 'The Joy Bus is the type of band that I really enjoy, but until I checked them out, I had forgotten that I enjoyed so much. Does that make sense? The Shoegazy and post punk bands like this that I like - I have liked forever. I just realized that I don't seek out new ones to add into the mix, that is until the Joy Bus. This Austin band is good.' -John, Party Ends.
