jj | High Summer
The Swedish duo of Joakim Benon and Elin Kastlander (aka jj) just posted a free five-song EP, “High Summer”, for you courtesy of the site, Sincerely Yours. The tracklist is as follows: 1. “High Summer”, 2. “10”, 3. “My Name”, 4. “Big Hearts, Big Dreams”, and 5. “Times”. You can click here to download, which even comes with an accompanying Word file with the song lyrics. The short, but sweet track “My Name” actually makes music of a recording of a woman rattling off her complete African name. But it might be the beautiful, light-tripping, and soulful “10” which will leave fans spellbound: “People wanna talk, but they ain’t sayin’ nothing / Oh baby, now, I’m ready for something / And I got cameras in my face / I guess the revolution will be televised / And I got 23 years of this / I just hope you’ll miss me a little when I’m gone.” Listen to the track below. — David D.
