   CD reissue of an album originally offered only digitally on bandcamp.
   Recorded, mixed, and mastered in Melina's room aka EMA studios from March
   2014 to October 2015.


   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 whatÆs to
   come for Jay Som on her debut album in 2017. Jay Som is currently signed to
   Polyvinyl records.


   Melina Duterte is a San Francisco musician who performs as Jay Som. She plays
   every instrument on her album Turn Into, a kaleidoscopic collection of dream
   pop touching on multiple moods.

   2016 has been a surreal and absurd year for most, but what a whirlwind it
   must have been for Melina Duterte. The San Francisco musician who performs as
   Jay Som (a moniker meaning ôVictory Moonö and pulled from a baby name
   generator a la Childish Gambino) toured with Mitski and Japanese Breakfast,
   released a 7" on Fat Possum, opened for Peter Bjorn and John, signed to
   Polyvinyl, and has been working on a debut LP. This flurry of activity is
   largely the result of a tipsy decision made on Thanksgiving 2015, when
   Duterte spontaneously dropped a nine-track collection of ôunfinished and
   finished songsö onto Bandcamp under the name Untitled. "It was completely
   unplanned," Duterte told Rookie. ôI didnÆt even think about the track listing
   or the album artwork or the order of songs. I have a ton of these songs, and
   from them I picked nine.ö

   That these tracks, later retitled as Turn Into, are technically demos is
   essential to understanding why the collection has been re-released twice,
   first by Top Shelf and later by Polyvinyl. Each track is a deeply polished
   offering that reflects DuterteÆs past musical experience and forecasts her
   promising future. She grew up playing the trumpet and planned to attend a
   conservatory program after high school to pursue her love of jazz. Instead,
   after realizing that she wanted to continue songwriting, she enrolled at
   community college to study music production and recording. She turned her
   bedroom into a studio, even removing the bed to install a drum set and
   puttered around with the tracks that would become Turn Into. She plays every
   instrument on the album, a feat that may remind some of Alex GÆs home
   recordings, in addition to mixing and mastering.

   Turn Into kicks off with "Peach Boy," a kaleidoscopic dream-pop number
   featuring lush vocals and elastic wah-wah guitar effects (appropriately,
   considering DuterteÆs history, early wah pedals were called "Clyde McCoy"s
   after the jazz trumpeter). Clouds move in for "Ghost" and the daydreaming
   elodies turn gloomy as Duterte confronts her fears. "Being scared is a huge
   theme of the album," Duterte told San FranciscoÆs KQED, and even its most
   upbeat, these songs contain undercurrents of anxiety. There are moments on
   the album where you can feel her audibly pushing against these restraints,
   like on "Next to Me," when she calls out "IÆm waiting too long IÆve had it I
   want to scream/And fuck being patient IÆm fragile I'm not weak" before
   disappearing back into the squall.

   Turn Into clouds into melancholy during its middle third. "Drown" resembles
   My Bloody Valentine at their most mellow or Mazzy Star at their murkiest.
   ôOur Red Doorö and "Unlimited Touch" feature woozy, extended instrumental
   swirls that invite you to drift with them.  "Why I Say No" and "SLOW" wend
   slowly back into warmer territory before pale sunlight of the title track
   pokes through. The slinky guitars and wistful vocals recall Death CabÆs ôYour
   Heart Is an Empty Room,ö and confirms that Jay Som is a multifaceted project,
   capable of painting in multiple shades.
