about

IHMR XVII / Feb 2016

Joy Sound II takes the approaches of Small Joy’s first EP further. The separation between more measured computer arranged pieces and all-analogue squalls is gone. Small Joy (Lois Hopwood) has extended her approach in all directions. The clusters of distortion are more distorted, such as on Stepping through Ice; a move towards more rhythmic elements, for example on Proximity F; crashing waves of sound, which on Wish U were here become wincingly loud until a sudden end; and more varied dynamics, with In Cold Water building to an almost oppressive quiet. At 18 minutes, and dubbed on both sides to reduce interruption, Joy Sound II is overpowering.
