Jay Som
Jay Som
Jay Som represents the musical vision of San Francisco singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Melina Duterte. Jay Som – a moniker that Duterte randomly found via an online baby name generator meaning “Victory Moon” – reissues Turn Into this Fall, a collection of finished and unfinished songs written, recorded, and mixed between March 2014-October 2015. Originally uploaded to Bandcamp last year after Duterte had a few too many glasses of wine at Thanksgiving dinner, Turn Into is an exciting glimpse of what’s to come for Jay Som on her debut album in 2017.
Los Angeles Police Department
Los Angeles Police Department
Ryan Pollie is a musician based out in - you guessed it - LA, breaking all the rules and pushing his experiences through a law-abiding vortex as Los Angeles Police Dept. 'The Only One' is a bittersweet introduction of folding, lulling guitar notes and softly-softly vocals that stir beneath the surface.
Plush
Plush
An exciting new sound grips the Bay Area's music scene as Plush pushes the bounds of genre and style. Plush is a four-piece originating from San Francisco, with members of local SF legends The She's. While their debut LP, Pine, is a beautiful combination of surf-rock and shoegaze, their auspicious new release, Please, encapsulates a completely different tone, both sonically and lyrically. Lush and warm, it has cinematic quality which suggests, somehow, that each track takes place in a different climate. With the angular and ethereal falsetto of Karli Helm contrasted by the hypnotic and unwavering voice of Eva Treadway, Please echoes a melancholic honesty that captures the album's heart-breaking, yet insightful versatility, deriving from both Wowee Zowee era Pavement andPainful era Yo La Tengo.
Sonically, the album embraces twinkling guitar tones that are blitzed with spurts of grainy fuzz, flaringly precise and graceful drums, as well as complimentary bass riffs that swirl and swoon each track, working in unison to pin-point these heart-wrenching emotions with clarity and catharsis. After sharing the stage with bands such as Ceremony, All Dogs, Ducktails, Sales and Creative Adult, they have proven their ability to blend seamlessly into wherever they land.
