MP3 of the Day #5: The Joy Formidable

By on Friday, 20th February 2009 at 10:00 am

To round out the week’s MP3s, we have a bumper special. The Joy Formidable have given away the majority of their debut for free, and sounds amazing – even better when you don’t feel guilty for stealing the music!

Originally from North Wales but now based in London, The Joy Formidable create dream pop which has drawn comparisons to Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Pixies, and understandably – it’s just sublime, so so perfect. Plus, the leadsinger, Ritzy, isn’t bad on the eyes either.

The tracks are on their website in scummy WMA format, so we’ve converted them to lovely MP3s for you. If you want the rest of the album, it’s available for £7 from their website, or a few more tracks for the price of your e-mail address.
