Listen: Lagom Är Bäst – Three Years Of Ja Ja Ja

In case you haven’t noticed, Ja Ja Ja turns three this month, and besides putting on one of our most interesting shows to date at The Lexington on the 29th (tickets HERE), we also have some special gifts in the bag for you all to enjoy wherever you are. First, here’s a Lagom Är Bäst mixtape, made by our dear editor-in-chief and all-time indie hero, Rich Thane, who had this to say about it/us:

“Happy Birthday Ja Ja Ja. Over the course of 36 months I’ve watched you grow from an unruly infant to a fully fledged grown up who doesn’t need papa quite the way you used to. Your ship of Nordic delights – whether online or on stage – guided by a wonderful team of dedicated souls. A pat on the back is deserved to each of you. Maybe even a kiss on the cheek.

To commemorate and to celebrate: A selection of old and new. Some classics of the past, some the future. The 19 songs here represent some of the most important Scandinavian acts to emerge in recent years alongside a handful of old memories and special moments. It’s up to you to join the dots. Hope you enjoy.”
