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.
This has become one of the most important albums of my life. It’s essence is indescribable. Every sound from the start of the record through the end is placed delicately and with care. The album cover is by Julie Mehretu. It’s absolutely an incredible release for which I shall be eternally grateful. Aniket
