I really like everything that jj has released so far. Lately, I'd been listening to a lot of the same stuff, but before last week, before I decided to only listen to Spanish pop music, I'd been listening to a lot of jj.

So since jj is so ultra-mysterious and everyone has already made a blogpost about them, I've been trying to figure out what I am gonna say. Here it is, I like them all the time, I like everything by them, I like them, like them, like them, a lot lot lot. Wow, that "sentence" was way more annoying than I thought it would be.

I think I first realized jj existed because they're on Sincerely Yours, and I love a lot of the music that comes from that label/Gothenburg in general. Everyone fell in love with Air France earlier this year/last year, but I just wasn't so into that. I really love their other labelmates, the Honeydrips, and well, at some point, I think we all sort of fell in love with The Tough Alliance. But I don't think I really fell in love with all of Sincerely Yours, until I found jj.

My favorite song on jj n° 2 is definitely "are you still in vallda?" just because of how perfectly sad it is. It just makes me feel like I can have a really good cry and be really peaceful. Isn't that strange? Maybe that's how I feel about the whole album. A lot of people have complained that they are too spacey or that they sound too much like TTA and Air France but just not as good. I don't agree. I like how spacey and empty and achey everything sounds. "ecstasy" is a lot of people's favorite song, and even though it's not mine, I still like every bit of it. I love "me & dean" where it's like "if you tell it to my heart/where would you start/with a truth we shared/or the lies that drove us apart" How could you not love that? I have been listening to "things will never be the same" over and over again, and that is much less spacey, but still really great. "my love" makes me feel kind of like I am listening to a Taken by Trees track, and that's not a bad thing. "masterplan" is very TTA, I won't deny that. "from africa to málaga" is another song that almost makes me cry, "my hopes and dreams" makes me a little anxious and I'm not really sure why. I am just so in love with jj, and I have been for awhile.I also really like jj n° 1, but I can never choose which I like more "my swag, my life" or "my life, my swag"

Everyone always wants to find out who is actually a part of this project, but I honestly don't care. I just want to keep listening.

Love, María


  1. who's dean?
    i thought they just recently released photos though. they should keep being mysterious because no one really likes sally shapiro now that they came out with who she is.
