[ ABOUT ]

[ Joy Wants Eternity ] aka [ JWE ] is a five piece post-rock band from Seattle. The band has drawn comparisons to [ Explosions in the Sky ] and [ Mogwai ] in album reviews with its melodic passages and equal parts ambience through heavily effected guitar. The Joy Wants Eternity song "You are the Vertical, You are the Horizon" was featured on radio talk show Sound Opinions. The band has played multiple shows with post-rock bands [ Caspian ] ~ [ Beware of Safety ] and Seattle's own [ You May Die In The Desert ]. The band's current label is XTAL Records. It can be surmised that the name of the band is a reference to the philosophical poem Zarathustra's roundelay of Friedrich Nietzsche's [ Thus Spoke Zarathustra ].

[ HISTORY ]

Formed in 2003, the original 15 piece lineup experimented with walls of sound and eventually pared down to a five piece before its first show. The band's first release came in 2005 with a self-released EP, [ Must You Smash Your Ears Before You Learn to Listen with Your Eyes ]. After a 90.3 KEXP-FM live performance, the band went in the studio to record their full length debut with the production assistant from the show, Andy Boyd. Released in May 2007 on local collective label Beep Repaired, the album [ You Who Pretend to Sleep ] received national attention with radio airplay and reviews.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
