Vir drops “Joy in Space” video, streams new LP ‘Engineers’

Oakland-based trio Vir—self-professed lovers of “fuzz pedals, loops and lots of delay”—recently released a video for the first single off their upcoming full-length Engineers, a track entitled “Joy in Space” that we originally brought you back in March. The video is a visually-arresting abstract stop motion of the band in action, an ideal visual representation of the song’s dirty psychedelic shoegaze sound. Check it out:
Vir is also streaming Engineers in its entirety on their homepage, or you can hear all eight tracks below. The album is out 5/28/12.
