jj - "Beautiful Life"

Swedish duo jj have always managed to seem like the coolest kids in music no matter what they sound like. They've managed to cover songs like The Game's "My Life" and Taio Cruz's "Dynamite" without resorting to cheese and irony to make them listenable. They titled songs things like "my life, my swag" back in 2009 on their first single. We haven't heard from them since 2010, a year in which they released their solid album jj n° 3 as well as the incredible and overlooked Kills mixtape. This year, they plan to drop the next release in their awkwardly named series, a single titled jj n° 3 that features this sunny and joyful acid trip called "Beautiful Life." Hear the track at Pitchfork and remember to keep tabs on the coolest uncool band in music.
