Shiny's Democracy by Shiny Joe Ryan
Shiny’s Democracy is the long-awaited sophomore album from Pond member Shiny Joe Ryan. Released seven years after his 2014 debut, Shiny’s Democracy sees Joe willing to try anything once and blend multiple genres together to create his own unique sound. With a background as a member of Pond and a part of Tame Impala’s tour crew, Joe has carefully crafted his signature style that calls upon his work with other West Australian artists while also setting him apart from his contemporaries. True to the title’s democratic vision, there’s something for everyone in Shiny’s Democracy.
