Jay Som included in Stereogum's 40 Best New Bands Of 2017
Posted 10/27/2017

It's been a banner year for our girl Melina and there's no artist more deserving. Stereogum just shared a list of their top 40 best new acts and wouldn't you know it – Jay Som landed a spot:

"Melina Duterte constructs songs with a painterly eye, augmenting her homespun indie with splashes of horns and piano and accordion. Over the course of the LP she moves from candy-coated fuzz-pop and slinky funk to subtle synth-pop and experimental soundscapes. And all of it, like everybody, works."

Everybody Works was met with critical acclaim and has already earned a place of loads of Best of 2017 (so far) lists, including Billboard, Consequence of Sound, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, SPIN, Stereogum and Under The Radar.
