J=J, 2013 EP

Ms. Joanna Duda and J=J come at us with a 30 minute EP today. She's from Poland, plays synths and piano and is aided and abetted by Jan Emile Mlynarski on drums and voice, and a couple of guests.

Jan has a very cool way of playing additive and subtractive beats which geometrically frees the frame; Joanna gives us a kind of electronic soundscape that sometimes riffs, sometimes sound-sculpts. It's a sometimes uncanny sort of DIY thing that you have to hear several times at least to get with.

But once you do you enter an odd sort of world and make yourself at home. One cut is a bit pedestrian in a radio-friendly sort of way; the rest makes for fascinating listening. Check it out.
