Fleeting Joys

Fleeting Joys

 Sacramento, California, USA

"Swirling guitars, layers of noise, drugged out soft male and female vocals sounding like part love, part death, part hope, part sadness." News that their debut album, Despondent Transponder, was "Loveless II" spread like wildfire and the initial pressing was sold out within a month.


"The California trio attack their songs a little harder than MBV ever did - kind of like a grunge friendly shoegaze."

In the same genre with Silver Sun Pickups, The Warlocks, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Asobi Seksu, Serena Maneesh, Jesus and Mary Chain, Sonic Youth, The Cure, Joy Division, Swervedriver, Spacemen 3
