Comfort can be a crutch or a conduit for a creative breakthrough. For Baths, it’s led to a level of artistic confidence and stability that’s allowed him to produce his finest work. Enter Romaplasm, a profoundly emotional record steeped in the at-home obsessions of LA’s Will Wiesenfeld. “I’m not as emotive with real world things as I am when I’m neck deep in anime, video games, books or comics…” Baths says. “I wanted to be honest with myself that this is where my heart lies and where I get the most emotion out of life. I wanted a record that mirrors those emotions but in an indirect way.”
For most listeners, No Joy are a standout from the shoegaze revival, that wall of noise lead by its two female band members Jasamine White-Gluz and Laura Lloyd and their long headbanging blonde locks. In a 2011 Blackbook piece on the band’s detached yet visceral live show, the writer coyly commented “they are playing with their backs to the audience…shy girls.”
Sasami Studied at the Eastman School of Music and has been performing music on horns, guitars, and keyboards since the early 2000's. Her work includes compositions for feature length films, branded content and experimental shorts. She has also created arrangements for studio albums and live performances, in a variety of genres and instrumentation. Sasami's most recent output includes a full length album with her band Cherry Glazerr and supervising sound editing on Sundance Official selection Holy Hell.
