Album Stream: The Gossip – “A Joyful Noise”

%name Album Stream: The Gossip   A Joyful Noise

Listening to “Perfect World,” the first single from dance-punk trio The Gossip‘s new album, there was a definite 80’s power-pop feel to it, so it should come as no surprise that Beth Ditto had been listening to a lot of ABBA prior to recording. Gone is some of the band’s edginess and agression, replaced by a more forgiving, bouncier sound – stream the whole thing over at The Guardian now.

    Can’t wait to hear the rest of “A Joyful Noise” on the 15th. Been a huge fan of Beth Ditto for a long long time and “a perfect world” is amazing! Check out a remix contest of the track to win 1,000 and merch on the band’s Facebook!

    man oh man this trio is rad. they do it unlike anyone else… edgy hip-hoppy pop. Beth ditto is tight, i wish more musicians were like her and didn’t give a s*** about people or anything. This group inspires me to continue being ME every single day and to not change for anyone. New album in just a few days now.. woohoo!

    Just downloaded the remixed version of this album on iTunes and looove it! It doesn’t have all the songs from the original album, but the ones it does have are awesome. Definitely check out “A Joyful Noise RMX EP,” you won’t regret it :)
