"The Best Thing I Heard All Year"

MOJO, December 2014

MOJO's favourite musicians share their discoveries of 2014

"I was in a clothing store with my daughter and this song came on. I had one of those 'Shazam' moments: 'I need to know what this is!' Because I have an affinity for any lullaby vocal over a trippy Jesus & Mary Chain track. And I fell so in love with this song. it's Johnny Jupiter by Haunted Hearts, which is Dee Dee Penny from Dum Dum Girls, and her husband who's the singer with Crocodiles. Man, when those two sing! Imagine Siouxsie Sioux and Lou Reed duetting. I listened to it so much that my Daughter finally said: "Daddy! Enough with the song! Turn it off!" I became semi-obsessed.
  And I'm really excited about Royal Blood. I watched their Glastonbury performance online and thought: 'They're cool.' Then I listened to the record in London and someone said: 'That went to Number 1.' What?! That hasn't happened in America in a long while."
