Arguably, the best interview ever! (JJ)


JJ is a band from Sweden that have worked with Ne-Yo in the past. I guess they'd meet the criteria of being called "dreampop."

This is a slightly outdated Scandinavian week post, BTW.

Anyway, I emailed them with several (rather stupid) questions. The responses? CLASSIC.

enjoy, what is probably the best interview I have ever done. Thanks, JJ! 

How are you guys doing? How is Sweden?

e - It's raining today, trying to make the pain go away. I feel life. This is life. Heartbreaking.
So much love, sometimes too much love for my human heart to handle.
I feel that I really fucked everything up today. I'm angry over all my mistakes.
But no time for regrets.

“The darker the night, the brighter the stars,
The deeper the grief, the closer is God!”

I have problems respecting myself. Takes time to feel all sorrow,
to understand how and why mankind told my brain to feel something
that was so far away from my heart.
I pay respect to life. I love life!

I don't know shit about Sweden, just a name. Burn all flags and get real. 

Any big plans for the year?

e - It's 2012, if someone doesn't expect something big from this year should stop and breath for a sec...
We're going to finish our record V, and release our single n°4, it's a bigger plan than big bang in my head.
So yes, big plans for me baby!   

How do you pick who to collaborate with? (as you've worked with NE-YO among others in the past)

e - I don't know who "picked" who with the collab. with mr NE-YO. I guess things are just meant to be. 

Who do you dream of collaborating with?

e - oh... So many that my head starts to burn when I think about that. To make music with inspiring spirits is a big part of my dream.   

Do you think the world will end this year? 

Earth is giving birth.
There's no end. Sometimes I get angry over that. Sometimes I just want it all to end.
That is why we have to respect and take responsibility for what we do and think. So fucking hard.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
