Album Review: Shiny’s Democracy by Shiny Joe Ryan

Reading now: 433

Shiny’s Democracy (★★★☆☆) features the Irish-born, Australian psychedelic rocker reenacting an iconic photo from the ’70s, with a trace of irony — the original photo of the Australian Prime Minister being dismissed from parliament represents for Shiny Joe “a failure of democracy.” But the artist’s first solo album in seven years is anything but a failure, with a catchy, accessible sound that is still very much his own.As a founding member of Pond and sometime collaborator with their Western Australian neighbors Tame Impala, Shiny Joe has been swimming in psych rock circles for some time.

Like its close cousin prog rock, the genre loves a good concept album, as attested by Pond’s recent work and Shiny Joe’s solo debut.
