The 15-track Joy serves as the second joint LP from the two garage rock acts. Previously, they released the acclaimed debut, Hair, back in 2012. A press statement compares the two records:
Hair grew out of a simpler time, man! If, as the dyphrenic duo indeed affirm on Joy, rock in 2018 is dead, don’t come around here looking for no burial. Instead, find Tim and Ty caught up in the commencement of on-beyond rock; arriving without traveling from the same place, occupying one single headspace, finishing the other’s phrases, pulling licks from each other’s places.”
As a taste of what’s to come, the pair have shared “Good Boy”, the jangly, Beatles-esque lead single. Take a listen below.
Joy follows Segall’s Freedom’s Goblin solo LP, which dropped earlier this year. As for White Fence’s Tim Presley, Joy marks his second collaborative record of 2018 following Hippo Lite with Cate Le Bon.
