Joan of Arc

Cassette Box Set

  • (10 full length albums, limited to 100 hand-numbered copies)
Joan of Arc - Cassette Box Set <p>Jumping between mathy ballads, acoustic meanderings, minimalist experimentation, and post-rock-indie-epics, Joan Of Arc have exhibited a fearless artistry in their 14 years of existence. A seemingly inseparable appendage of the group&#39;s only consistent member Tim Kinsella, JOA is, in our humble opinion, one of the most unapologetically prolific bands of our generation - both in output and artistic vision.&nbsp;</p> <div>From the Califone-produced &quot;In Rape Fantasy and Terror Sex We Trust&quot; to the sleezy rhythms of &quot;So Much Staying Alive and Lovelessness&quot; to the trendsetting &quot;How Memory Works&quot; and the eclectic &quot;Joan of Arc, Dick Cheney, Mark Twain&quot; - JOA is a band that is not averse to excessive growth and one that is not afraid to baffle their audience. The perfect example may be 2000&#39;s &quot;The Gap&quot; which prompted a 1.9 Pitchfork rating (&quot;Joan of Arc make unlistenable faux-art records&quot;) and a glorious example of JOA&#39;s inherent divisiveness.&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Their records are inconsistent in genre, perspective and purpose, yet consistently challenging, unadulterated, and honest. As their current label Polyvinyl says, JOA possesses &quot;a mentality that embraces contradictions and tears apart common musical structures, only to rebuild them without a blueprint.&quot;&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Contained in this collection are the 10 full-length albums from JOA, beginning with 1997&#39;s &quot;Portable Model Of&quot; (Jade Tree) and ending with 2009&#39;s &quot;Flowers&quot; (Polyvinyl). Over a decade of JOA material, released here in the formats of the people for both 1997 and 2009: Cassette and Digital. Don&#39;t know where to start in their catalog? Start here.
