‘jay-jay johanson – laura’. 

A bit of a rare treat, here’s Jay-Jay Johanson ahead of the release of his ‘opium’ set caught performing a live rendition of Bats for Lashes ‘Laura’ at the Red Bull studio in Paris  featuring occasional collaborator Robin Guthrie. Seriously if this doesn’t cut so deep as to make you somewhat tearful then frankly you must be made of stone. Emotionally crushing, there’s an almost sighing hymnal gracefulness quietly slipping these bitter sweet wounds with Johanson’s bruised recital cradled in the soft sympathetic sweep of the genteel majestic arrangements beneath.
