Joy Cleaner - Total Hell
Your first question upon hearing Total Hell might be 'is this a compilations of hits from Joy Cleaner?' Your second question may well be 'who the hell is Joy Cleaner?' Fair enough, let's take the second question first. Joy Cleaner is a power pop trio from New Jersey which includes Kyle Wilkerson of the late Makeout Vertigo. Kyle and pals Joey and Cory display a knack for loading each track with wall-to-wall hooks and playing them with anthem-level energy. As for the second question, to my knowledge this is their only album to date, but it is full of sharp-edged indie pop gems. Good stuff at a good price!
Total Hell is available now in digital and CD formats from Jigsaw Records. See the Bandcamp link below.
