Detroit electronic pop pundits Jamaican Queens have listened to your cries and pleas for a sophomore release and have answered with Downers, a 10-tracker full of eccentric, unconventional songwriting fit for the dance floor to the afternoon cruise with the windows down.

Toss the quirky ‘sweet nothings’ of Magnetic Fields, the glitchy synths from Low-era David Bowie and the lyrical witticisms from Morrissey and you’ve got Jamaican Queens.  They have the rare ability to follow traditional pop structures and craft something unexpected and interesting along every turn.  Embedded layers of sultry harmony and thumping back beats beg your volume dials upward and onward, and holy smokes is it FUN.

250 licorice pizzas await you after the ‘buy’ link.
