JAY-JAY JOHANSON

JAY-JAY JOHANSON
SELF-PORTRAIT (2009)
320 KBPS

A few days back, I was telling a friend that I tend to like "dark music", not in the sense of let's say, murderous industrial music, but just music that tends to be in a played in a minor-key. So I decided to try and look up a definition of what exactly "dark music" is, and what I came up with were the terms, "solitude, melancholy, confinement, and isolation". Oddly, this is never really the feeling I get form this kind of music. Instead, I would probably use the words "sexy" and "intriguing", hey but that's just me.
Anyway, this new Jay-Jay Johanson sure fits the bill. It's dark yet beautiful, haunting and unique. It still has that electronic trip-hoppy feel but with more substance and depths than his previous albums had. In a way, it's a return to his roots only with more skills and experience. Hell, just get it and you'll see.

J’écoute ça à l'instant, et c'est très sympa. It’s dark but not overwhelmingly so.

(Ah tiens, j'ai mélangé les langues à trois secondes d'intervalles. Pas fait exprès.)

Sinon pour la petite histoire j'écoute ça directement sur Spotify (avec un compte premium, pas de pub). C'est vraiment sympa comme service. Techniquement, pour moi, c'est parfait. Au niveau du catalogue, c'est peut-être le plus complet du marché, même si on ne trouve pas tout. Le seul regret c'est qu'on risque peu d'y découvrir des trucs un peu confidentiels, même si j'y avais dégotté Jayne Cortez. Plus récemment, j'y ai découvert Emily Loizeau.

Fais gaffe quand même... Mélanger le français et l'anglais est un signe de Vandamisation... ^^

Et je ne connais ni Spotify, ni Emilie Loizeau mais tu sais que, pour moi, il n'y a qu'une Emilie en France... <3
