The labeling of Jay Som, a.k.a. Melina Duterte, as a multi-instrumentalist is not one that is bestowed lightly. The San Fran-based artist performed every instrument—yes, every instrument—on her album Turn Into, which will be reissued with her new label, Polyvinyl.
A DIY-kind-of-gal, Jay Som’s home-recorded and -mixed Turn Into is dreamy bedroom pop album that is fiercely independent and poignant in its lyrics and melodies. Her next record through Polyvinyl will have a 2017 release date.
Jay Som is currently on tour with Mitski and Japanese Breakfast.
