JOY * album of the week *
:: My Way My Love ::
07 January 2008 / No Label Required / Blowout : Graveyard / 12 Trk CD
By JA

Alt-Jap rockers My Way My Love unveil one of 2007’s best kept secrets, in the form of their impulsive, compulsive slam fest “Joy”. If for one moment you can imagine Sonic Youth being shredded through a meat mincer with ample doses of feedback and angst, then tracks like “Acupuncture Man” and “Parties” begin to make sense. On “C” there’s even a stab at refined lilting pop, albeit balanced on the razor sharp threat of cascades of irreverent, splintered chaos. As the album progresses, it’s obvious that My Way My Love can capably balance their progressive furnace of melodies and grinding guitars with intelligent doses of feverish alternative pop. “Joy” is an album of refreshing contradictions of noise and ideas, all of which are destined for much bigger things in 2008.
