Best Albums of 2020: The Just Joans – The Private Memoirs and Confessions of The Just Joans

Described as the missing link between The Magnetic Fields and The Proclaimers This Sextet from Glasgow, Scotland has been making music for over a decade now.

A clever mix of Pop sensibilities and clever songwriting their songs are short bursts of sunshine Pop with bits of Post Punk thrown in for good measure.

Their latest, chock-full of descriptive song titles including the ode to The Ramones, “Hey Ho, No Go,” “Who Does Susan Think She Is” along with the highly excellent “The One I Loathe The Least” are all narrative gems.

The band name itself comes from, ‘Just Joan’, a column in the Daily Mirror and the entire-set wears the groups Scottish heritage loudly and proudly.
