Our friend Jay Som (aka Melina Duterte) is movin’ on up. In what comes as a surprise to absolutely no one, today it was announced that the mega-talented San Francisco songwriter has signed to venerable indie label Polyvinyl. Duterte fully admits she started Jay Som on a whim — less than a year after uploading the contents of Turn Into, she’s joined the ranks of Polyvinyl vets Deerhoof, Alvvays, La Sera, and tons more.
As part of the announcement, Polyvinyl is going to reissue Turn Into, which is a compilation of odds and ends she uploaded to Bandcamp in 2015. You can nab the collection in all sorts of formats over on Polyvinyl. An official debut record is planned for next year.
