AEG & ALT 106.7 Present: Joywave and Sir Sly

 Joywave and Sir Sly Present: An Event with Sir Sly and Joywave

“Anxiety caused by feeling too content” is just the first aspect of the double-pronged paradoxical rumination that is Content, the sophomore full-length album by Rochester, NY-based indie quintet, Joywave, slated for release July 28 with a tour supporting Young the Giant and  Cold War Kids to follow. The title, Content, sees Joywave apply their trademark irreverence and  humor to two large yet interrelated ideas springing from the dual meaning of the word, “content”, and  signaling a move into a deeply personal terrain for Joywave frontman Daniel Armbruster.

The triumphant lead single from Sir Sly's Don't You Worry, Honey, "High" turned a hotel-room panic attack into a creative breakthrough for the L.A.-based trio. "This album started out as an exploration of fear and anxiety, over very minimal electronic music, but 'High' really opened up the honesty of the record," says lead singer Landon Jacobs, who co-founded Sir Sly with fellow multi-instrumentalists Hayden Coplen and Jason Suwito. With "High" emerging as "an upbeat anthem about ego death," in Jacobs's words, the song ultimately formed the heart of Sir Sly's second full-length: a deliberately hopeful album born from an extraordinarily dark time.
