BAS JAN FIRST ALBUM ‘YES WE JAN’ OUT NOW!
BAS JAN’S DEBUT ALBUM IS AVAILABLE DIGITALLY NOW
+ PRE-ORDER PHYSICAL RELEASE FOR DELIVERY FEBRUARY 23
MARC RILEY SESSION: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09q3ktj
Bas Jan’s debut album Yes I Jan is available digitally now ahead of a full physical release on February 23 (pre-order here). The reviewers’ verdicts are in on the London experimental post-punk trio’s new record and it is this: *aiiiiiiirhoooooooorn*. “Messy majesty,” 9/10 say Uncut. “Beautifully fractured art-pop,” ★★★★ agree Mojo. “Clever, warm and unpredictable… much to savour,” Q concurs. “Day-to-day stories full of uncanny pop punk magic,” enthuses The Quietus. Marc Riley had the band on in session for his BBC 6 Music show the other night – you can listen back at the above link – and had such nice things to say of the Jans as “we love them”, “just wonderful”, “ace” and “delete all other music” (we made the last one up). If you’re not in the habit of letting the media make your mind up for you, just take it straight from us – buy the album. Buy it. Seriously, buy it. Buy it. Buy. It. Or give it a stream for free on Spotify or Apple Music (other streaming services are available). Then buy it.
The special pre-order bundle of Yes I Jan comes with an exclusive tape, featuring remixes from contributors including Chooc Ly Tan, Danelaw, Hannah Peel, Lone Taxidermist, Rachel Horwood and Rozi Plain. We’d love to be able to tell you that there will still be copies of the tape bundle available by the time the album launch show comes around on Wednesday, February 21 at the Total Refreshment Centre in London, among other forthcoming live manoeuvres. But way they’re selling on pre-order we can’t promise anything. Only one way to be sure (buy it, stupid).
