Tevas, Tinnitus and Timing with No Joy | Listen Up!

L-R: Laura Lloyd and Jasamine White-Gluz

Listening to Montreal rock band No Joy gives us visions of a professional snowboarder on a sunny day, flying off a jump, doing something complex and elegant midair.

Not something we necessarily understand. But we’re into it.

We do know that No Joy leaders Laura Lloyd and Jasamine White-Gluz derive their looped and soaring music from guitars and effects pedals. The rest of new album More Faithful is a mystery to us. We’re cool with that–and highly recommend it as a soundtrack to summer road-tripping, camping, head-banging and zoning out.

We spoke to guitarist Laura Lloyd after a recent concert in Seattle about Tevas, tinnitus, complicated time signatures and chia seeds.

What’s Up, Olivia: Enjoying Disappointment

heroOur Director of Creative Projects and Pop-In Shop curator Olivia Kim offers up daily inspiration, favorite products and things she’s super in love with right now.


Cape Disappointment

“The lighthouse here is the oldest lighthouse on the northwest coast. Cape Disappointment has also been known to be called Graveyards of the Pacific, there have been so many shipwrecks here because of the treacherous waters of the peninsula! I love the history and story behind this!”

Tunnel at Oneonta Falls

“Great hiking on the other side of this beautiful tunnel! I hiked to the top last weekend with my best friend Joey—the waterfalls up there are breathtaking. Triple Falls was one of our favorites.”
