No Joy @ Mexican Summer Five, 10/12/2013

We asked a bunch of artists to submit Top 10 of 2013 lists. Most of them just sent their favorite records. But sometimes they surprise us like Wax Idols and No Joy did with their similar, but very different BV-themed lists.

Here's No Joy's:

Top BrooklynVegan threads of 2013 that we thought were entertaining in no particular order

* best guitarist thread

* guns and roses brooklyn bowl thread

* Googa mooga cancellation thread

* postal service reunion rumor thread

* ron reyes leaves black flag thread

* amanda palmers open letter to sinead o connor regarding miley thread

* no joy played glasslands thread

* death grips no show thread

Thanks No Joy! Wax Idol's more angry list is HERE.

Wax Idols and No Joy put out terrific albums this year, too, that found them both heading in new sonic directions; the former with gothy post-punk on Discipline + Desire; and the latter turned down the noise to make room for moody, ethereal textures on Wait to Pleasure.

No Joy's last NYC show was as part of Mexican Summer's Fifth Anniversary celebration at Pioneer Works in Red Hook back in October and a belated set of pictures from that show are in this post. More of them below...
