is an experimental Italian duo originally from Genova born in the spring of 2005. The band consists of Davide Cedolin and Paolo Tortora.
JG music is characterized by wall of delayed guitars, echoed vocals, electronic glitch beats and synth pads, but it’s not right to define their sound into a specific kind: there's a path that the band is following: from the first release “Talking. Silently e.p.”, focused on an ambient-glitch type of soundscapes, to “Without you I’m napping”, more oriented to massive shoegazing guitars melted with psychedelic obsessive loops and first real percussions ever.
During the sessions for the first full-lenght, Japanese Gum put some unreleased tracks/versions together with few friends’ remixes into “Lost in weirdness” (remixes by Isan, Die stadt der romantische punks, Eniac…).
The new album “Hey Folks! Nevermind, we are all falling down
” has been released in september 2009 by Friend of mine records, and it’s a perfect balanced combo of liquid atmosphere, droning guitars, suspended vocals, electronic patterns and real drums.
