In describing Jooj’s self-titled album, released in 2015, Sook-Yin Lee said her “hope was to bring people to a curious and discomforting place, but with a sense of guidance and comfort.” Jooj Two, released after collaborator Adam Litovitz’s death, seems to continue that mission. The album pairs electronic elements with Lee’s dreamy vocals. The album closes with a eulogy named after her late partner, hopefully, returning the feeling of comfort.
