Clash Magazine: May 2010

. Saturday, May 8

The landmark 50th edition of Clash magazine is in shops now. The brand new look is really smart and refreshing, I hope you all get a chance to see it and have a look. Inside there is some of my work, most notably reviews of the new Flying Lotus album and a live review of Phoenix's recent sojourn in Camden. Also inside, I reviewed the very lovely new jj album 'No.3'. Read it below:

No. 3
Secretly Canadian

JJ are a band who delicately shatter expectations. A pair of barely legal Swedes this boy girl duo mix their husky, 3am odes to love and longing with verses of grimy US hip-hop and subtle washes of house influenced beats. Their second album in as many years, JJ continue to gather a pace and No.3 will surely propel them further into hearts and minds. As delicate as it is intricate and inventive singer Elin Kastlander’s fragility is close enough to touch whilst the sports commentary samples on ‘Into The Light’ show a brave eye for invention that bodes well for the future.
