Swedish duo jj emerged on Sincerely Yours Records in 2009, who released the duo's first full length album, jj n° 2. The album received a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork, was named "The Year's Greatest Musical Obscurity" by Paste Magazine, and was listed among the year's best releases by the likes of Pretty Much Amazing, Prefixmag, and Obscure Sound.
According to the bio, jj favor "an artfully enigmatic presentation that has engendered near-complete Internet silence concerning the group's identity and back-story." Secretly Canadian will release their next album, jj nº 3, in March. Sincerely Yours recently gave away a couple of new songs from jj, one from the forthcoming album and another featuring a verse by Lil Wayne. jj will soon be on tour with The xx, and will be making their way to Austin for SXSW.
