Playful, whimsical and ultimately very danceable music.
It’s a tough balance to make tracks that feed the brain just as much as the feet, however this albums delivers both effortlessly.
Favorite track: River Red.
Andras’ Joyful is a cornucopic vision rooted in the decay of dance music from one of Australia’s most distinct yet understated musical voices. Cutting a path through an overgrowth of nostalgia around 70s acid folk and 90s acid house, Joyful is an invitation to till an old garden under a glistening new light.
On behalf of Andras, a portion of proceeds from this release will benefit the Invasive Species Council as a part of the ongoing Come! Mend! Initiative.
Ever since this came across and I took a chance on its intrigue, this has been one of those albums I knew I would absolutely be owning forever. It's such a mesmerizing, cohesive piece and once the symphony steps in, it becomes utterly transcendent. It's one of the best pure pieces of music I've ever heard. I hope one day to hear a live performance, even if it's local musicians and a symphony, just to hear it in that space. giventofly87
