The Joy FormidableĀ returns in with AAARTH, a punch in the gut compared to their previous releases focusing more on fuzz guitar and less on pleasing melodies, even though the melodies are complex and diverse.

There are 3 (4 if there is a US Indie Only but I don’t see it) versions of this currently. All are available but the boxset is sold out on the bands webpage.
