EDITORS’ NOTES

With a catalog as peerless as JAMC’s, Jim and William Reid have never needed to reinvent the wheel. Damage and Joy, their first album since 1998’s Munki, revels in the simple pleasures that the band always has: girls, vices, and fuzz-toned rock ’n’ roll. Laidback duets with Isobel Campbell ("Song for a Secret") and Sky Ferreira ("Black and Blues") are buffeted by glorious walls of sound, while reworked tracks like "All Things Pass” or “The Two of Us” are hard-partying rave-ups that would sit seamlessly amongst their groundbreaking noise-pop classics.
