Jay Som - Baybee

| Kerri
Sweetheart, listen
Make up your mind
Whatever helps you sleep
In the night
Pieces won’t mend back together
That's a shame
You shaved off parts of me I must erase
Cause I know
You know
I know

Jay Som got her moniker the same way Childish Gambino got his. Wonder if she'll decide to let it go in a few years as well? Hailing from Oakland, CA (Congrats Dubs!) Melina Duterte has been working on her version of bedroom pop since middle school (and MySpace). With the recent release of her official debut album, Everybody Works, she continues to explore and put her stamp on styles from R&B (like this track) to folk, to grunge, to top 40 pop. Pitchfork praises her, and at least one music blogger (not us, Oh My Rockness out of NYC) ranks this album as a contender for best-of-the-year. So give this track a listen, but don't stop there.
