Joyful Joyful - unknown [edited excerpt]

One of the striking things about seeing this drone-hymn band in action is the serene patience with which things build. There was a gorgeous slow accumulation to Dave Grenon's synthscape that I abbreviated here — partially to accentuate the song's end zone, where some musicians (Allie Blumas, Liz Lima, Del Stephen) from the night's earlier acts were drafted in to add some additional textures behind Cormac Culkeen's triumphal/mournful vocals.

[Joyful Joyful will be opening things up at Joyfultalk's album release celebration, coming up on Monday, March 16th at The Burdock.]
