BLK JKS EP Out Now | Playing Union Hall, Santos, SXSW

DOWNLOAD: BLK JKS – “Lakeside” (mp3)

This past Tuesday (March 10) marked the re-release of the Mystery EP by South Africa’s BLK JKS. For the Secretly Canadian reissue, the EP was re-mastered with new artwork and a new track sequence. I first heard the track “Lakeside” on NPR and was instantly captivated, and now that I’ve heard the whole EP, I think it’s definitely worth picking up (Pat’s a fan too). If you live in NYC, you’ve got two chances to catch them this weekend, on Friday night (March 13) they’ll be at Union Hall and on Saturday they’ll be at Santos Party House, after that US fans will have to seek them out at SXSW or at the Sasquatch Festival in May.
