jj "jj n° 2" CD Out Now

"jj n° 2" is the dreamy debut album from Gothenburg's jj. This mysterious outfit from Sweden makes the kind of warm, sunny Balearic pop the region has become known for, but jj do it much better than most. Sharing both the island sounds and sticky-fingered irreverence of their label mates The Tough Alliance and Air France, they also carry traces of iconic twee label Sarah Records and when jj drift closer to early-'90s ambient-house, they still allow emotion to flood through the textures, and they never start repeating themselves. For all the above reasons, jj have crafted a truly fascinating album and one of the best hidden gems of the year! Includes "Things Will Never Be The Same Again", "From Africa To Malaga", "Ecstasy", "My Hopes And Dreams" and more.
