In Episode 56, Tom chatted extensively with one of New Jersey's finest power-pop outfits, Joy Cleaner! The trio is in the midst of an eventful 2018, as they recently wrapped up a June tour that brought them to several cities across the East Coast and the Midwest, and will be playing alongside Guided By Voices at Athens Popfest on Friday August 9th.
Joy Cleaner also recently celebrated the one year anniversary of their excellent debut album, Total Hell. If you're a fan of infectious, jangly indie-pop, then you need to pick up this album! It's available via Jigsaw Records on pink vinyl, CD, and digital download.
Oh, and we had a blast talking about tunes. Tune in to hear Joy Cleaner's awesome picks from my record collection, their origin story, and their plans for balance of 2018 and beyond!
A huge thanks to the band for stopping by to chat with me. We had a heck of a time!
