new jj jams

sincerely yours was kind enough to offer two fresh new gems from the increasingly prolific (and no less amazing for it) jj, at least one of which, the haunting “let go,” will be featured on the forthcoming follow-up to my fifth favorite album of 2009, jj n° 2. the logically titled jj n° 3 will be out march 9 on yours and secretly canadian.

from yours:

“OK, jj went to malaga to have some fun, get some sun and 2 albums done. it was back in the fall of 2008 when they had both lost their virginity to insanity and were looking for moments of clarity. a plane to spain felt like a reasonable opportunity.
so with money in the bank, nobody to thank, it started with a drank.
and a couple of hours later the on the 29th of september they had felt the first breeze coming in from africa, sweet winds of melodies pure and true.”

what they said. get the tracks here.

also here’s the artwork for n° 3. i kind of miss the blood-splattered pot leaf already.

jj are also making their US live debut soon, with appearances at sxsw and a tour with the xx. sweetness.
