The Joy Formidable Is Giving It All Away

Proof that sometimes the NME can make me forgive their hyperbolic ways: The British music magazine is offering a free download of A Balloon Called Moaning, the forthcoming album from the Welsh band the Joy Formidable. The album by the noise-pop outfit, who I have raved about on this site before, is out in physical form Monday (and obviously, worth buying as a thank you for this generous gesture). If you want to see why this is one of today’s best developments—if not the No. 1 piece of news I’ve heard since I woke up this morning—check the video for the incredibly ebullient “Cradle” after the jump.
