“a lot of blood was sacrificed to make this happen.”
The only things I know about jj are that he/she/they use no-caps, sacrifice a lot of blood to make music, remain cloaked in mystery, and sound like a perfect fit for the electro-dream-pop of label mates The Tough Alliance and Air France. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if jj turns out to be some sort of Air France/Tough Alliance collaboration.

The two tracks on the 7″ are “my life, my swag” and “my swag, my life.” A bit confusing? I imagine it’s all part of the mysterious no-caps/reversable-band-name marketing gimmick.
Pitchfork just Best New Track’d “my life, my swag,” and “my swag, my life” stacks up just as nicely.
Take a listen to the songs below, or purchase them on vinyl or MP3 over here. And remember, with every order from Sincerely Yours a donation is automatically made to the World Wildlife Fund (because Sincerely Yours is just awesome like that).
Get ready for 7.5 minutes of infinitely listenable bliss (seriously, these tracks have been on repeat all night).
