Croon, Jamie Woon!

Ok, I’m probably hella tardy to the party on this guy, but I’m kinda officially an old person who has abandoned all hope for keeping up with the jams favored by youffs of today. But now and again I’ll pause my riot grrrl and Jodeci remix cassettes long enuf to hear some NEWNOWNEXT music that doesn’t make me scratch my chin and stamp my K-Swiss in confusion. Rather, it reminds me why I shouldn’t be one those annoying “I only listen to music from {random yesteryear decade}, back when music was GOOD. Pffft” type of people.

Case in point: Jamie Woon, a British Malaysian Chinese/Scottish singer/songwriter/producer, whose debut album Mirrorwriting is a striking blend of haunting, soulful, and groovy. Souvy? Graunting?? YES.

 

If you’re a fan of James Blake or just like purty boys who can croon til the cows come home, then Woon is your dood.
