Out of the blue, and timed perfectly to soundtrack Sweden’s Midsummer’s Eve, the country’s precious duo jj have released a 15-minute surprise godsend, the free EP High Summer. The title track opens with an angelic cover of T.I.’s “What You Know,” leading into a nod to the label that introduced jj to the world— I’m a nice girl with some nice dreams/ In my own world, with my own team/ Come with me and my million dollar thoughts/ Here you go, my world is Sincerely Yours. With some impressive vocal layering, “High Summer” is one of the best songs they’ve ever produced. If you’re grateful and looking to throw them some money, jj’s n° 4 7-inch was released this spring on Secretly Canadian.
