No Joy, Heavy Hawaii

PETE COTTELL
7:30 pm., Saturday October 05 | $10.

[DOOM WAVE] Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino may have misplaced her Zoloft the day she Tweeted about No Joy being “the best band ever.” The band’s combination of syrupy guitar sludge and out-of-focus female vocals sounds better when doing a face plant in shag carpeting than the crest of a gnarly wave, but we’ll let the Angelenos sort that out on their own time. The ground No Joy covers is familiar, but it deserves credit for writing dreamy, sexy slow burners about dreamy, slow-burning sex better than most other My Bloody Valentine acolytes that actively stare at their Keds these days. The duo has effectively beaten Warpaint at its own game, at the very least.
