Daniel Olmos RIYL: Synths that sound broken, breaks that sound synthy, scottish accents, chicken tonight, waking up early on Sunday because your girlfriend's sausage dog hates you, clocks, TV, 2 cups of tea before half past 8, being infiltrated by wifi signals, spinning on a chair whilst thinking about the singularity, those alien worm parasite things that control you and you seem normal but also a bit autistic. When people do that thing with their hands any time anyone mentions Hip Hop.

about

Joyous Material Failure is the debut album by Carbs, the not-folk brotherly duo of Fence Records alumni Jonnie Common and post-op-pop dropout Jamie Scott.

Slouchy beats and sung choruses intersperse with loose-tongued rapping but it's not a hip-hop record. It's not a pop record either. It's the document of an all family collaboration, powered by pizza and a shared will to defamiliarise the process of making music.

Joyous Material Failure is a phrase used by Simon Harlow in a lecture, which sparked the idea for the creative process behind the album. We thank him for this inspiration.
