Joy Cleaner - You're So Jaded
Just like our sports watches and iPhones, we at WYMA often need an energy recharge in the middle of the work week. And there is no use in fighting the feeling -- the only solution is to search through our recent intake file an find what we need. So please give a warm welcome to this week's Wednesday energy special: You're So Jaded by New Jersey's Joy Cleaner. Brewing a thumping aural concoction of power pop and '90s alt rock, this band creates songs that are free-wheeling, punchy and thoroughly addictive. This 10-track is their sophomore LP, and it builds on their strengths with a further sharpening of their power pop chops. We can find true joy in the classics, and rocking tracks of You're So Jaded deliver a mega dose.
Joy Cleaner are Joey DeGroot, Kyle Wilkerson, and Justin Grabosky. You're So Jaded is out now in digital, CD and vinyl formats via Portland's Jigsaw Records.
