Think back to the start of our current decade. Was Diamond Rings dominating your headphones as much as ours? (I’ll admit that my Halloween 2011 look was an interpretation of the “Wait & See” video.) If so, you’ll be delighted to hear he’s been quietly releasing music for the past couple of years under the name JG Ballad.
They’re a set of covers–so far, he’s tackled the likes of The Constantines, Neil Young and more–except he’s loaded them onto a spaceship and launched them up into an infinitely danceable, wonderfully addictive stratosphere. This latest addition, released yesterday, brings k.d. lang’s “Constant Craving” to glorious new heights. We’re so on board.
