Merry Christmas to All From JJ

Yesterday, we got word from Secretly Canadian that JJ, who made Vince's #1 record of the year and my #4 record of the year in jj nº 2, has signed to the venerable indie for their new record jj nº 3 which will come out March 9th in conjunction with Scandinavian label Sincerely Yours, who released the previous record. On a funny personal side note, several days ago an Other Music employee and I were lamenting the lack of JJ vinyl in the store. We wondered aloud why a US label wouldn't just pick up the band to give their music a proper stateside release. Well anonymous, cute, saleswoman, here's our answer. (#missedconnection?) Merry Christmas to all, from JJ. See their first US tour dates with the XX after the jump.
