While his tunes catch you with their impeccable hooks, hypnotic grooves, warm tones, and crafty structures there lies subtle darkness in J Fernandez' songs. Whether it comes from the woozy combo organs fighting frequencies or the bummer lyrics that leave you feeling hollow, Fernandez is grasping for something real. While "nostalgia" is a comfortable word to describe these tunes, not all pop music has to fall into that blasé carefree zone. In fact, that might undermine not only Fernandez's craft but also the amount of painfully, self-conscious awareness that makes his compositions so reflective and true. They are personal tunes but ones crafted so well as to ring in our collective unconscious, instantly begging the question Where have I heard this before?
Two really well crafted pop songs on 7" vinyl. Jackets designed and screen printed with a shower curtain by J Fernandez himself, extra texture vibes; inserts designed and screen printed by Jenna Caravello. 200 copies pressed at the legendary Palomino plant, RIP TOM DILLANDER.
