Jed & Lucia

But if you change your mind
I won't ask for answers
Even though I do know why
I won't make you say it

Jed and Lucia come from the Pacific North West and Sweden respectively, but have settled in California making wistful dreamy trip-hop, a kind of Feist although it also reminded me of Portishead. Alt-folk electronica I suppsoe. Their new album Off the Ground combines intelligence and warmth, like eating meatballs cooked over a low fire on the californian shore-line, sipping a glass of fruity red wine ripened in the Californian sun. Like reading Kerouac, these songs speak of love and travel. I love it.

You can hear and buy the album at CDBaby, or download one of my favourite tracks below
