jj – New Work

A couple of years on since their foundation and jj and label Sincerely Yours remain as tight lipped as ever. No detail, just a solid gush of new sounds that for the most part are pleasing and in some cases a but more than that. Joakim Benon and Elin Kastlander appear to have stalled a little since becoming the haystack of choice for Pitchfork but that is not to say that they are redundant. In fact ‘New Work’ would tend to suggest that the Stockholm duo are very much at the peak of their powers. It may not swoop with the finesse of ‘Things Will Never Be The Same Again’ but then not many things do. In many ways ‘New Work’ is slightly awkward but in a world of conformism this is to be both applauded and encouraged. KD

Although, if i have to sit through the last thirty seconds of talking at the end of this track one more time I may never listen to it again…just quit talking. “this is my life yadayadayada cool sweet whatever.Holy annoying delay batman.
