Florida Dream Folk: Day Joy

Twopiece dream folk act Day Joy released their full-length Go To Sleep, Mess last month via Small Plates Records. Orlandians Michael Serrin and Peter Michael Perceval splashed into the pond last March with their debut EP, Animal Noise. They've certainly held to their own standards. "Purple" is vaporous -  conviction guides the singer as the wardrums guide the strings and voice along in the four-minute procession. Like much of Day Joy's music, "Purple" weaves sound recordings into the instrumentation - you'll hear a paddle splashing, children playing, wind blowing.

Look for the album on 12'' vinyl from Small Plates, linked above. Paste Magazine also offers a full stream here.
