In the course of the past 10 months, budding indie outfit Mt. Joy sure hasn’t done us dirty with their music. Each one of the handful of songs the LA by way of Philly duo has released has garnered critical acclaim and fervent love from fans. New song Dirty Love is no different, having already racked up more then 45k streams on Soundcloud alone. The pair have even been selected to NPR’s 2018 Slingshort Artists and Yahoo’s 10 Artists To Watch lists. They deliver gravelly stirring, rhythmic enthralling indie rock on Dirty Love, a song that’s rather meta in its exploration of becoming full-time musicians. It’s another fine taste from Mt. Joy’s self-titled debut album, sure to make a deep imprint on the indie scene when it arrives on March 2nd. Re-visit their prior singles on Soundcloud in the meantime, here.

Back to LA we go for a new one from rising indie outfit Mt. Joy, who I’m hoping I’ll get to catch when I make my annual pilgrimage to Austin for SXSW in March. They fuse indie rock with rootsy folk on Jenny Jenkins, lifted from their forthcoming full length. The dusty drawling song feels a bit like a stripped down Cold War Kids track. The band, who were selected by NPR as one of their 2018 Slingshot Artists as well as Yahoo’s 10 Artists to Watch, showcase their versatile sound on the song, having given us a plethora of fine tunes in the past including the more jazzy soulful Sheep. Jenny Jenkins is a wistful and nostalgic ballad, and though it’s not a cover of the Jerry Garcia and David Grisman song of the same name, it is very much connected to it. Stream/download the single, here. Mt. Joy’s self titled debut album arrives on March 2nd via Dualtone Records.

Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and prepare to sway in sublime bliss to Mt. Joy’s lush languorous music as the Philly by way of LA band serenades us with Sheep. The jazzy soulful tune is the second single from Mt. Joy’s self titled debut EP. Hints of Tom Misch and HONNE can be found in Sheep, except there’s a bluesy smokiness and comforting crispness to the song that feels like warm chicken soup for the weary soul. You can grab the tune off of iTunes as we await Mt. Joy’s debut EP.
