Shoegaze has had a bit of a resurgence in the past several years, with bands like Tamaryn, Whirr, and Serena Maneesh almost flooding the market with their updates on the walls of bendy guitars that My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive had seemingly already perfected over 20 years ago. Montreal's Laura Lloyd and Jasamine White-Gluz threw their hat into the ring with 2010's hazy, mind-bending 'Ghost Blonde' and 2012's 'Negaverse EP,' and now with 'Wait to Pleasure' they've one-upped themselves with an album that's even more immersive, due to the meticulously textured arrangements and superior sound, allowing the listener to fully appreciate the album's multi-layered sonic palette.

Unlike No Joy's prior releases, as good as they were, 'Wait to Pleasure' probably wouldn't be mistaken for a 4AD or Creation label album from the early 90's, as evidenced by opener 'E,' with it's eerie and crushing repeating guitar riff, pummeling-yet-hypnotic rhythms, and soothing female vocals all intertwining in a way that transports the listener to a uniquely euphoric state of bliss, despite--or BECAUSE of--it's crushingly heavy cacophony of noise. MBV used a similar formula, of course, but No Joy's songs here are more hook-laden, with elaborate rhythms and a blissful-yet-haunting vibe that's all their own.

Other highlights for me include the dark, piano-laden walls of fuzzed-out guitars of 'Hare Tarot Lies,' the stuttering, trance-inducing trip-hop beats and electronic effects of 'Blue Neck Riviera,' the ethereal atmospherics and insanely catchy vocal melodies of 'Lunar Phobia,' and the lush, languid acoustic guitars and swirling background of closer 'Uhy Yuoy Yoi.

To make a crappy album of shoegazey music one would have to put in more effort than it would take to make an only "ok" shoegaze album. As long as a band is competent enough to not stray too far from some semblance of structure beneath their distortion clouds, they can pull off something semi-listenable. But, to make a GREAT shoegaze album, a band needs to write some great songs, something that might be somewhat of a strain for those shgz acts whose talents stop short after reverb-obsession and pedal-play.

No Joy's "Wait to Pleasure" not only makes sublime use of all that gauziness, it also has one great DISTINCT tune after another. From the metallic-bass drive of "E", to the ethereal joy of "Hare Tarot Lies", the cuddly "Lunar Phobia" and the jaded funk of "Blue Neck Riviera", every song is it's own song. There is no jumble beneath the cloud; you might get a little lost, but you can always find something of definition on which to lean. Even better, these girls (+1 dude) don't just survive on writing catchy tunes (though they are all catchy), they also put different musical ideas into each number.

In terms of shoegaze post-1995, I think it helps to draw parallels to some of the greats. No Joy, to these ears, pull mostly from the lineage of the great Ride. Not so much their debut, but their unstoppable sophomore effort "Going Blank Again". On said album, the rhythm section is always full-steam, providing a heaviness not present on releases from MBV or Slowdive. No Joy's got the same thing going on with "Wait To Pleasure". The bass is always pounding, images of Geezer Buttler dance in my head, and the drums are doing their best to bring the blimp down, fortunately there is enough helium to keep afloat.

Highly recommended standout album in an overcrowded field. Heavier and more energetic than their peers. Heavy without sacrificing femininity.

Hyper, powerful... Provoking. I really enjoy it. Takes me back to the days when I could still look forward to seeing RIDE play live.

2nd release from band out of Montreal, Canada who play driving, celestial indie pop that's buried
deeply beneath vibrating waves of feedback noise. Gorgeous harmony vocals float, subtly,
tantalizingly under the swirling pain-barrage of amplified guitar-screech. It's a potent dream-pop/
shoegaze noise fest! Similarities to My Bloody Valentine, Cocteau Twins, A Place To Bury
Strangers, Exitmusic, Yes Sir, A.R. Kane, Ringo Death Starr, Jesus & Mary Chain, Ride, The
Koolaid Electric Company, Beach House, Chapterhouse.
