about

JESSOP&CO. is a mysterious and reclusive duo from Calcutta, India. They have a penchant for upper-case statements, as a look at their Facebook profile will steadily prove; and this could be a perfect way of describing their aesthetics. They depict a bleak, raw, living space, where all things, repulsive things and beautiful things, sit next to each other.

Cream, their latest record, is made of two lengthy tracks. From a strictly musical point of view, ‘Dead Hair’ might remind of Eraserhead’s soundtrack, reinvented. The atmosphere is filled with anxiety. And yet, as in some nightmares in which we’re irresistibly attracted by a morbid curiosity, the listener is compelled to keep going through this unique soundscape. Even if there is no longing for redemption, or ascension. ‘Flower Hung’, however, gives the listener what Lynch never gave to Eraserhead’s viewers: solace. It’s a kind of solace that’s not coming from another world. It’s still the same bleak, hopeless space of ‘Dead Hair’. But, as we all know, solace comes from accepting our anxieties. By painting them less black.
