Pitou + Jay Som

Facebook event Share Tweet

Double-bill full of unruly dream-pop

Jay Som recorded all the instruments for her debut album ‘Turn Into’ herself, in her bedroom in San Francisco. She maintains that DIY method for her second album ‘Everybody Works’ too, where she fuses lo-fi rock with energetic punk and dreamy folk. With this album, she wants to convert her frustrations and negative energy into something positive: “This is a note to myself: everybody's trying their best on their own set of problems and goals. We're all working for something.”  Pitchfork picked the album up right away as ‘best new music’
Singer Pitou, from Amsterdam, surprised with her self-titled debut EP. Her distinctive voice, unique songs and harmonic vocals are inspired by Bulgarian choral song, the music of Sparklehorse and Joni Mitchell. This year will see the release of her second EP, which she says has a dark side to it though there is still room for the requisite dose of humour.

In the press “Melina Duterte's careful, wise, and excellent album is the rare debut that expands the borders of a genre. It's not bedroom-pop because it sounds a certain way, but because it feels so intimate.” – Pitchfork on Everybody Works - Jay Som
“She crafts intelligent folk-pop that balances the darkness and light of human emotion.” - The Independent on Pitou



Pitou was prachtig mooie stem mooie liedjes mooie sobere balans ***** Jay som viel tegen, luid en afstandelijk geen ambiance (weinig toeschouwers) muziek vind ik prima maar optreden ondermaats **
Veel verwacht van Jay Som, op plaat goede songs maar live komen deze niet tot hun recht, geluid zat ook niet goed en was weinig gedrevenheid in optreden. Mitski ergens in september te zien in Trix is qua performance pak beter. Pitou daarentegen klasse op het podium met aanstekelijke harmonische muziek
