The Joy Formidable- A Balloon Called Moaning

March 7, 2009

I first came across The Joy Formidable before Christmas with their snappy titled tune My Beerdrunk Soul Is Sadder Than A Hundred Dead Christmas Trees and a catchy number it was.

What really got my attention though was the single called Cradle and they have released their ep A Ballon Called Moaning which not only has this but 4 other great tunes.  Of the others Austere and While The Flies are standouts but its difficult not to keep coming back to Cradle which will stay in your eardrums for a while!

The download version is free from Music Glue and if you buy the cd you get the full 8 tracks.




  1. Am pretty impressed by these guys – have been gleaning their stuff off the Internet for weeks now. Good to see their CD available to buy at last!

    • Yeah great when a new artist actually releases their tunes so you can get the physical format…problem nowadays is hearing a new tune minutes after they have thrown it up on MySpace and its months before it comes out!
      Hmm reminds me I still have to get The Antlers!
