Almond Joy are the celestial comet heading the West Coast Pop Revival. Featuring a cohort of Bay Area scene stars Jordan Almond (Rays, The World), as well as Muzzy Moskowitz (Froogie’s Groovies, Color Green), Tika Hall (Warp), Staizsh Rodrigues (Children Maybe Later), Britta Leijonflycht (Rays, Galore) , and Pat Thomas (Cool Ghouls). This release continues the rich tradition of DIY bands crafting instant pop hits entirely on their own terms, which has long been the hallmark of the International Pop Underground series. Look for the video for singles “Candy”, “San Francisco”, and “Oh Henry!” And a show or two....Whatever happens it is quite assuring that whatever these times may bring bands can still put out music as good as this EP.
