John and Jehn – Time For The Devil

I'm still reeling from the Savages' show at Mercury Lounge a few weeks ago and started to do a bit of digging into this enigmatic band and found lead singer Jehny Beth’s other project John & Jehn, a killer New Wave duo with some absurdly catchy tunes.

Bear with me if you like totally know this, but I couldn’t help but wonder how Savages was able to erupt onto the scene as full-fledged force of nature, and the fact that Savages co-founder and guitarist Gemma Thompson backed up Jehny Beth and her partner in crime John aka Nicolas Conge during their UK tour a few years back explains a lot.

Anyhoo, check out John & Jehn’s killer “Time For The Devil,” the title track off their second album as well as “And We Run.” Oh yea, and aside from their two killer albums, John & Jehn started the Pop Noire record label which Savages and LESCOP are signed to. NBD, they just kinda of sort of do it all.
