'A Little Bowling Alley Time With Torrance Pop-Punkers Joyce Manor'

Posted by - 12:54 PM on 07/22/14
Ian Cohen, writing for Grantland about Joyce Manor:
Considering its caffeinated, soused, sweet, and wired music, it’s fitting Joyce Manor was consecrated over an alcoholic energy drink. And as a kind of quintessential California suburb, the physical and conceptual “Torrance” is the perfect place to inspire a perfect summer rock album, i.e., Joyce Manor’s new LP, Never Hungover Again, released today. Most people drawn to this music formed their idea of “summer” at a time in one’s life when summer was significantly different from the rest of the year — Johnson describes his own as consisting of “backyard shows, everyone would be skateboarding, chased off by security guards, throwing water balloons at people. Very Screeching Weasel suburban knucklehead stuff.” Screeching Weasel being an avatar for dumb shit that could happen anywhere, i.e., the lifeblood of pop-punk.
