jj / 2010-03-09


Last summer Gothenburg, Sweden's jj quietly
released one of 2009's most critically-acclaimed
albums. The album was named jj n?2 and it was the
group's debut full-length (their first single was
jj n?1). With the naive swagger of youth, jj have
already completed their next full-length. We here
at Secretly Canadian are incredibly proud to
present jj n?3 to you. If jj n?2 was (as it was
to many) the quintessential summer 2009 album, jj
n?3 is destined to be the quintessential winter
2010 album, a soft, red smear of blood on a field
of fresh snow.
jj create R&B and balearic dub from the ghosts of
lost lovers; pop as delicate as a fawn's nose
across blades of frosted grass. It is the
soundtrack for friends packed into the town
square's tiniest tavern, their moontanned,
apple-cheeked faces glowing, their dilated pupils
filled with all the meaning and meaninglessness of
a magic 8-ball. Their music is both carefree
without carelessness, and self-aware without being
self-conscious. With it, they build an ice bridge
arching from Gothenburg into the heart of middle
America, and everywhere in between.
Praise for jj
"JJ's music floats so cleanly--instantly
gratifying, calming and still mysterious."
- The Fader
Praise for jj n?2
"It's a gorgeous ode to chemically-assisted
euphoria, or an effective, shimmering simulation
for those who keep their intoxications on the legal
- BEST NEW MUSIC Pitchfork
"The year's best debut came from crypto-genius
Swedes who sound like Enya covering Lil Wayne at
Lilith Fair 2015."
- The Washington Post
