On Anak Ko, Jay Som’s third album, Melina Duterte is wide awake and dreaming. The new album has a spacey shimmer that matches the artist’s hopeful reflection. It also positions Jay Som further outside of bedroom pop, a label that never seemed to fit Duterte’s grander ambitions. From jangly shoegaze of “Superbike” to the Gorillaz-esque “Devotion,” Anak Ko sees Duterte going into full studio geek mode. The only downside is that at just over a half-hour, it flies by. It’s one of those albums you wish would go on longer.
Enter below to win a pair of tickets to see Jay Som on Thursday, Oct. 17 at High Noon Saloon.
