The Joy Formidable

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: I posts a woefully inadequate amount of indie music. But hey, why should I? Most is a load of angst ridden bile driven by some Pete Doherty wannabe, or some over bloated guff you feel like you need a degree to understand.

The Joy Formidable are guilty on neither counts. Having been described as dream-pop by Radio 6 DJ Tom Robinson, and sounding like a cross between The Wombats and The Von Bondies, TJF operate as the perfect link between radio friendly 'guitar music' and post prime-time indie. Love it, love it, love it.

TJF are playing shows nationwide throughout March and April. Check out their Myspace page for specifics.
