San Francisco’s Jay Som, the solo project of singer-songwriter Melina Duterte, celebrates heading out on tour with Mitski and Japanese Breakfast next month by re-releasing two older songs – I Think You’re Alright and Rush — on a new 7″ for Fat Possum.
Directed by Phil Collins. Parquet Courts‘ excellent new LP Human Performance is out now on Rough Trade.
Still Corners, project of songwriter/producer Greg Hughes and vocalist Tessa Murray, return with the brooding Lost Boys, lifted from their third full-length album Dead Blue, due out September 16 via the band’s own imprint label Wrecking Light Records.
“We were working on this new song and I had just finished reading ‘Catch a Wave – The Rise, Fall and Redemption of Brian Wilson’,” Tessa explains. “I really connected with Brian. It echoed a lot of my past relationships with guys who were troubled.”
“This album is an expression of our fears and our desires in an effort to get a handle on our past experiences and the world around us”, Greg muses. “The more you know your own darkness, the more you can control those triggers to prevent all out wild fires in your own life. There’s an old Native American tale where an elder tells a boy about the two wolves that live in his heart. One is love and one is fear. They are in a battle. The boy asks, well “which one wins?” The elder replies, “the one you feed most”. A big part of winning that battle against fear is knowing what triggers it.”
