We Are Re-Releasing jj no 2 on August 3rd! Download New, Free MP3!


Does the following scenario sound familiar?

You walk into a record store, looking for something new and great to listen to.  Your friend asks you, “Have you heard the jj nº 2 album? It has a giant, blood-spattered pot leaf on the cover and the singer has the voice of an angel! They are Swedish as hell.”  You haven’t heard of jj nº 2, so you ask the friendly clerk if they have it on vinyl.  They’re like, “Naw, dawg, it’s out of print.”  Your life fucking sucks so bad!!!  You were so pumped for a minute.


Starting August 3rd, you can waltz into any fine music store (digital, brick and mortar, or…otherwise) and receive your very own copy (cd, lp or digital) of one of 2009’s greatest pop albums.


There is more good news for the jj fan and the about-to-be-jj-fan: to celebrate this, we are offering a free mp3 for a song that was recorded during the jj nº 2 sessions, “Baby.”  This song is not on the re-release of the album, but only for free on the internet.  You can download it today at SPIN online here.

Please pre-order your copy of jj nº 2 here at the Secretly Canadian Mailorder.

Let us know if you have any questions about this.  These are confusing times.  We’re here all day.

THE IMPOSSIBLE SHAPES re-release Tum, Tour the States, new MP3s

Bloomington Indiana’s IMPOSSIBLE SHAPES are not a band to sit still for very long. The musical energy created by these three enlightened men is enough to create lights in the sky to rival Aurora Borealis.

Easily the rawest tapes of the Shapes canon, Tum is a potent album, self-produced and directed to articulate a peak without contemporary parallels. Previously released last year on St. Ives Records as a vinyl-only release, this hidden gem, one that many consider to be the band’s lost Masterwork will be available to all on March 7th.

MP3’s: Florida Silver Springs
