Details: No Joy's fourth album, released on Joyful Noise Recordings in 2020. Canadian pressing. Neon violet colored vinyl. New stock, unopened.

Description: "On their fearlessly creative, beat-heavy new record, the Montreal band spikes their dream-pop with trip-hop, nu-metal, and other ’90s signifiers. ... a shoegaze album with a rare scope and an even rarer sense of fun and imagination."--Evan Rytlewski, Pitchfork

"Motherhood is defined by its refusal to compromise—presented with any choice, the album seems to answer, “Why not both?” The result is a creative tornado that sweeps up everything from bongos and trip-hop to slap bass and a broken clarinet, cohering somehow into a set of songs that gives the listener as much as it demands of them. It’s a testament to the power of creativity, intertwined with an emotionally complex contemplation on the act of human creation. That it’s No Joy’s most ambitious album yet, as Paste pointed out in highlighting Motherhood as one of August’s most exciting releases, is not up for debate; that it’s their best is not much more of a discussion."--Scott Russell, Paste Magazine
