Introducing: Safe In Sound Home Recordings From Quarantine
Struggle and isolation often spawn great art. In this strange moment of history, we can't help but see the potential for creation... With all of our artist's sidelined from touring and regular life plans, we decided to commission the artists of Joyful Noise to record a new song from within their quarantine environment.
The 2xLP collection features new songs from a wide variety of artists, including Swamp Dogg, Deerhoof, Kishi Bashi & El Ten Eleven, C.J. Boyd & Will Oldham, Helvetia, The Ophelias, Kramer, Rob Crow & his kids, Thor Harris, Mike Adams At His Honest Weight, No Joy & Josh Kastner, Jad Fair & Hifiklub, Tall Tall Trees, SUUNS, Good Fuck, Dumb Numbers, Sound of Ceres, Magic Sword, and Ohmme.
The album is now available in its entirety via Joyful Noise website or Bandcamp. Available for download, and limited edition 2xLP White Vinyl (w/ instant download). 100% of the money goes to the artists, or to a charity of their choice.

If you can imagine a linoleum block or woodcut, where the raised area is the surface that is inked, and other areas are […]
Spring has sprung and along with that comes the announcement of Jad Fair’s first LP as our Artist in Residence, here at Joyful Noise. The first and newest LP, Let’s Born to Rock, is a collaboration with Strobe Talbot and features the upbeat and classicly lo-fi song “Back on Track”, anounced today! If you haven’t been keeping […]
