The best part of the year end ‘Best Of’ hullaballoo is discovering new music you may have missed, like The Joy Formidable. Thanks to Dany and his ‘Best Of’ contribution to The OCMD, I now have this North Wales trio on heavy rotation. “Austere” is off their 8 track called A Balloon Called Moaning. Speaking of moaning, their video for the track, featuring les facettes de la petite mort, was recently banned on YouTube. But don’t fear, you can watch the banned version on their website here.
