Joyce Manor "Last You Heard of Me"
Published Sep 14, 2016After shouting out Kanye West on the first official preview from Cody, Torrance, CA pop rock blasters Joyce Manor are saluting some local haunts on the latest teaser, a sad-sack anthem called "Last You Heard of Me."
Sounding something like a cross between Semisonic's "Closing Time" and early Weezer rarity "Jamie," the cut finds singer/guitarist Barry Johnson reporting on time spent at Los Angeles' Alibi Room for a beer, and why he generally doesn't partake in smoking weed in the parking lot. He then gets wistful above a push of pop-geared distortion, and recalls being shivering and naked by the end of the piece.
