Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Melina Duterte AKA: Jay Som, reissues Turn Into on November 18th via Polyvinyl Records.Today, she has shared the video for the LP’s first single “Ghost.”
Jay Som recently toured with Mitski, Japanese Breakfast and Peter, Bjorn & John, and this month Duterte and her band are back on the road for a few headlining dates and a mini support tour with Honeyblood.
Turn Into is a collection of finished and unfinished songs written, recorded, and mixed by Jay Som between March 2014-October 2015. The collection is available digitally now for purchase, and will be available on vinyl, cassette and CD on November 18th. That’s just in time to celebrate the one-year anniversary of when Duterte uploaded Turn Into on Bandcamp after having a few too many glasses of wine during Thanksgiving dinner.
Jay Som – a moniker Duterte randomly found via an online baby name generator meaning, “Victory Moon” – performed every instrument on Turn Into (guitar, bass, keys, and drums) and self-recorded/mixed the entire collection in her San Francisco home. Jay Som’s proper debut LP will be released in 2017.
