JoJo Worthington’s music is infinite. She crafts experimental post-folk in which intimate recollections explode into limitless soundscapes. Fusing electronic glitches, acoustic nuances, and extraterrestrial melodies, Worthington’s work pushes emotionally potent folk songs to the perilous edge.
JoJo Worthington’s latest project, TCYK (The Company You Keep)—released June 2019—is a celebration of her diverse strengths. This succinct powerhouse of an album, co-produced with William Crann, is a magnificently textured exploration of Worthington’s experience as a woman navigating tumultuous relationships. Orchestral and electronic sounds blend, creating serene walls of sound that compliment intimate narratives. Within only a handful of songs, Worthington presents a whole body of feeling. Listeners are guided through conflicts between ephemeral lovers, distant friends, the human and divine. However, TCYK is ultimately a celebration our attempts at connection, as Worthington asserts: “we need to stabilize”—a rallying cry for mutual support between sexes.
