about

I spent the beginning of this year wondering about listening beyond the usual borders, and it feels fitting that I should close it by giving one of the artists I mentioned their dues. EJE is the work of Portugal´s JCCG, a musician who finds a quiet beauty in repeated actions. It is less an overlooked album and more an impossible not to overlook album (it was released as an edition of 30 cassettes on an obscure Mexican tape label) but it is absolutely worth hunting down. EJE takes me to the plane that Wolfgang Voigt in his Gas guise dreamt up - a place of great calm and understanding - yet does so with just a bashed up guitar and loop pedal.
Ruth Saxelby - Dazed's overlooked albums of the year


No hay guitarra en el mundo que suene así de bonita: abduce y es abducida por el clima siempre acuático y ensoñador y vuelve a ser el más apreciable argumento de nueve sugerentes, pacientes y despejadas tonadillas bucólicas que me recuerdan a un Mark Mcguire adormecido y casi grogui en una jam sin fin. o incluso, de refilón y salvando las muchísimas distancias, a The Cure en la canción '6'. pero, con permiso de 'Wending&wandering', 'Eixo', 'Rare Twee', 'Splash Clash Tempo', Days of Days' hechiza casi la que más con una melodía soleada, jovial y fluorescente, tan agradable y evocadora que me quedo muda.
