When I first wrote about LA heartthrobs Joyce Manor, it was for a relatively inglorious show they played at a bookstore. That was a little over a year ago, and quite a bit has changed since then: In the winter, Joyce Manor embarked on an East Coast tour with Desaparecidos, on which Conor Oberst joined the band onstage for their signature song, "Constant Headache." While a new release from the band would absolutely be welcomed, their self-titled debut is a perennial pop-punk (with a huge emphasis on the "pop") classic that I still bump constantly. Its follow-up, Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired, is less consistent but still wholly enjoyable. So far, Joyce Manor have proven to be a band that can do little wrong. All we can do is hope they keep it up. MORGAN TROPER
