New Music: Jay Som "The Bus Song"

I’m a little bit late to review this, I don’t even know why. I had a feeling I’d love Jay Som - first hearing that she was chosen as an on tour support for Mitskiand Japanese Breakfast (can this tour please come to Australia??), and then that feeling was confirmed with her I Think You’re Alright / Rush 7”. The Bus Song is the first taste of her upcoming album through Polyvinyl and maybe my favourite song of hers. It makes me personally recall everytime I think taking the bus will be a good idea, and then regretting it as your body is at the mercy of every twist and turn on the road. The upcoming album is apparently inspired by Yo La Tengo and Carly Rae Jepsen’s E•MO•TION and that’s seriously all you need to know.
