New 417 band (ayy that's where I live), enJoyed is an experimental rock noise band, the kind that you get put in a trance listening to. First off, this is a lo-fi release. I'm thinking Shane (Vocals/guitar) recorded it with his phone. But even so, you can still dig what's going on here. Pretty sure enJoyed is a two piece, which I love, and I feel that they pull it off really well. Vocals are minimalistic, and when they do come in, they're just screeches and yelling in the background. Very lo-fi, very cool. Pretty much this entire release is noise, I don't know how else to put it. It's really ambient, the kind of stuff you put on and just listen to and take a nap and have a weird dream. I'm a big fan of this type of music, but i feel like if you don't enjoy experimental music, you probably won't love it. Cool thing about enJoyed, they seem to have no idea what they are doing at some points, but then they come together and it all sounds awesome. If you can get through the lo-fi, check it out.

favorite track: as small as the universe is large (cool vox)
