The much-anticipated 5th studio release of dual Portlanders/Londoners The Gossip isn’t technically released until the 22nd but you can listen to it now on Soundcloud at the gossipyouth.com website. It’s everything and more you expect from the trio behind 2006’s breakthrough release Standing in the Way of Control.
A blend of soul, gospel, rock, funk, disco, and punk, Joyful Noise manages to sample from the great parts of 40 years of rock and electronic without sounding outdated. From tracks that mock their hipster support base like “Get a Job” to the perfectly epic sounds of its first single “Perfect World” the “popular in Europe” hometown heroes are finally poised to take the country by storm.
