AJJ Christmas Island

Info:

Christmas Island, the 5th album proper from Phoenix, Arizona’s AJJ, is a little bit silly, a little bit serious. It’s a record that’s irreverent yet somber, full of humor and full of pathos, its twelve songs combining the two to create a record that truly cuts right to the bone of the human condition. They’ve built a significant cult following since their inception in 2004, one that knows just how heart breaking, heart warming, and inspiring their shambolic songs can be. The tension between fury and forgiveness, between anger and calm, between love and hate and life and death, isn’t just thematic, but weaved into in the sonic fabric of these songs. Christmas Island – it’s far from a random title, but it’s also kind of a secret – is simultaneously ridiculous and sublime in the way that Andrew Jackson Jihad always have been. It’s a record absolutely in keeping with their bold and brilliant past – the one their cult following has been following for years – but it’s also a bold and brilliant step forward. Released by Side One Dummy Records
