music should make you feel. and torrance, california’s joyce manor make me feel like punk rock is alive and well. they’re loud, rough around the edges and wear their influences on their sleeves.
in joyce manor, i hear some weezer, some none more black, some larry arms. i hear a young band gaining momentum that might turn some heads. all that feeling translates into a sloppy, noisy, fantastic record that forced me to tune in and listen front to back two times through.
headover to 6131 records and wander about. there’s a song or two you can download. you can also buy the album on itunes.
