There’s now a full Joydah artist page on Spotify. Follow me to keep up with new releases, playlists etc.
Bandcamp is a platform for artistic expression, and all manner of variance in experience and identity, including gender and sexuality, is welcome here. We support our LGBT+ users and staff, and we stand against any person or group that would see them further marginalized. This includes the current U.S. administration, and its recent capricious declaration that transgender troops will no longer be able to serve in the military. That this announcement was motivated in part to help fund the border wallexposes it as part of the administration’s cynical, discriminatory agenda.
In response, we will be donating 100% of our share of every sale on Friday, August 4th (from midnight to midnight Pacific Time) to the Transgender Law Center, a nonprofit organization that works tirelessly to change law, policy, and culture for the more equitable. TLC does critical policy advocacy and litigation on multiple fronts, fights for healthcare for trans veterans, defends incarcerated trans people from abuse in prisons and detention centers, supports trans immigrants, and helps trans youth tell their stories and build communities.
In joy. Make some noise.
Nice little write-up from Acid Ted:
Joydah are from Wales. And this is as far from the close harmony singing of Welsh cliché as you can get. It’s a big spatter of chopped strings, backwards sounds, electronics, post rock guitars, a little hip hop and a massive amount of hwyl. Think The Polyphonic Spree put through the blender with lava bread and the surf on Rhossili Bay. Each track a joy and a thrill to uncover. A bit of cymruddyfodoliaeth I guess. And all for ‘name your price.’ Absurd.
