BLK JKS sign to Secretly Canadian (free MP3)

According to The Guardian they sound like an African TV on the Radio...

They look like TV on the Radio's cousins from the sticks but Johannesburg's BLK JKS actually sound light years ahead with their bushwacker bass and calls to the wild. Having already featured in all the right magazines, from Blender to The Fader, now the middle class white dudes at The Guardian are even shedding their cord blazers and wearing wooden beads, whilst proposing they've been hip to Africa since Paul Simon's bizarre but somehow popular 1990 classic Rhythm of the Saints.

Rather than selling their soul to a major that would no doubt terrorize the very beds they sleep in for the rest of their natural lives, BLK JKS have stumbled nicely in the laps of Secretly Canadian. One of my favourite labels for the past 3 years, BLK JKS could do a lot worse than share their label umbrella with the likes of Anthony & the Johnsons and Jens Lekman.
