Musical rabbit holes are either the shit — or terribly frustrating. This is especially true when recommendations come to you through a favorite band — especially one with which you share geographic proximity.
This happened last week while listening to our homies Sylvan Esso talk about listening to music at their favorite bar in Durham (The Pinhook?) and hearing our JOTD band, Porches., whom at the time they were unfamiliar with. They loved it, then used their newfound fame to pump it up something fierce, so I checked it out.
What I heard is also right up my alley, THE JOY! – so here we are, one vinyl purchase later featuring a different song than the cover those Essos played on XMU last week. Check it below.
