Epic/Glacial Pace Recordings 
Fire Note Says: Many new directions on Holy.
Sam Jayne’s Love As Laughter has to be one of the hardest working indie bands that has been around for twelve years and never really broke out from the underground. On the groups sixth release Holy, they are going to try and change that status as this is the first record released under their partnership with Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock’s Glacial Pace Recordings, which is a part of major label Epic records. Holy is a new turn for the band because it is a complete expansion of their sound and LAL utilize more instrumentation then ever before. On songs like “Crosseyed Beautiful Youngunz” and “Konny And Jim”, LAL sound like a new jam band with laidback structures and lingering bridges that feel like that they could go on forever. This relaxed vibe circulates throughout the record with “All Parts Of Me” having a World flavor to it complete with
Key Tracks: "Paul Revere", "Bonnie And Clyde", "Konny And Jim"
