Jay Arner Premieres ‘Jay II,’ Plots Canadian Summer Tour

June 15, 2016 - Supermoon

West Coast avant-popster Jay Arner has been toiling with Energy Slime for a final integrate of years, though he’s finally prepared to share some some-more solo element with a attainment of his aptly patrician sophomore record Jay II. He’ll be holding a new tunes on a extensive run of debate dates opposite Canada, though before that kicks off, Exclaim! is giving we an disdainful listen to a new set of songs.

The manuscript opens with “Back to School,” and while summer vacation might only be kicking off, a strain delivers a seasonally suitable view of throwing manners to a wind. The jangly dream-pop sounds lift by a LP on cuts like a formerly common “Crystal Ball,” “Like a Dracula” and a phone number-revealing “Personal Line,” while a good-for-nothing dejection sets in elsewhere on marks like “World of Suffering.”

But even when a theme matter delves into darker territory, a songs sojourn light and appreciative to a ear, providing a fresh, spacious soundtrack to a coming summer months.

Throughout those summer months, we can conduct out and locate Arner live alongside Supermoon and a handful of other special guests. The arriving slew of shows starts in Edmonton on Jun 23. After a army in Western Canada, they’ll conduct by Ontario in July, afterwards continue easterly into a Maritimes. After a trek behind west, a whole thing will hang adult in Victoria on Aug 13. The full list of arriving shows can be found below.

Jay II is out on Friday (June 17) by Mint Records, though we can corkscrew past a debate dates to give it an early spin right now.
