Jay Som - 2017
Beautiful, unqiue, ethereal at times, while antagonistic at others - Melina Duterte's album is a true breath of fresh air, and her music, classified as "alternative," is actually deserving of that label. There is a true sense of the unknown that acts as the undercurrent of her music, and though each composition is not necessarily challenging or pushing the boundaries, there is an essence within each one that makes the listener feel as though they have never heard anything like it before.
Highlights: One More Time, Please, Baybee, Everybody WorksAndrew Scott Back
