Since first hearing Rochester-based Joywave’s single “Tongues,” I have been incessantly playing their 88888 mixtape during my commute to and from the office. From brooding to bombastically poppy, 88888 spans a wide array of genres and styles, yet Joywave somehow manages to produce something that’s unmistakably them.
This indie/electronic sextet has been steadily taking over the East Coast with their broadly eclectic sound, and although no show dates have been announced on our side of the country, I have no doubt that Joywave is poised to make their West Coast splash any second now. Until then, enjoy exploring their rad music via the 88888 mixtape, which you can download below for the low, low cost of $0. That’s right, it’s free (who doesn’t like free?)!
