Not many people in his native country Sweden knows of the excellent and melancholic singer Jay-Jay Johanson. Cutting his teeth in the 90's producing brooding and seductive trip hip his career has been interesting to follow. From trip hop, to electro, to house, to acoustic songs but always retaining that unmistakeable Jay-Jay signature feel. In my mind this is a real return to form after two good but somewhat muted records where he serves up songs balancing between bright levity and utter darkness. The themes are familiar; love, despair, longing, lust and nostalgia backed by a production that masterfully complements Jay-Jay's voice and lyrics. Standout tracks are; Mr Fredrikson, Orient Express, Hawkeye and The Beginning of the End of Us.
