Jay Som's new single, 1 Billion Dogs is a fuzzy, alternative pop track that we're really into. We're happy to hear new music from Jay Som and can't wait to check out the full album!
Bay Area-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Melina Duterte - recently announced Everybody Works, her proper debut album, which will be out on March 10th via Polyvinyl Records.
On her first proper album as Jay Som, 22 year-old Melina Duterte solidifies her rep as a self-made force of sonic splendor and emotional might. Everybody Works - which Duterte wrote, recorded, played and produced entirely by herself, save a few backing vocals - was made in three furious, caffeinated weeks in her bedroom studio throughout October. Duterte even ditched most her demos, writing half the LP on the spot. If last year's aptly named Turn Into compilation showcased a fuzz-loving artist in flux, chronicling her mission to master bedroom recording, then Everybody Works is the LP equivalent of a mission accomplished.
