Joyful Noise Recordings (Chad VanGaalen, Swamp Dogg) drop an LP of pleasant jangle-fuzz from Chicago singer-songwriter J Fernandez. Occasional Din is an apt title for this record. From time to time things get loud, but as a general rule Fernandez is happy to allow his airy ditties to pootle along in a manner reminiscent of Mac Demarco and Ultimate Painting.
J Fernandez sounds like he has been sitting out in the sun for a long time thinking about these songs, enjoying the warmth but also feeling a bit sad. Not too sad, but a touch of melancholy. Many Levels Of Laughter is a very well crafted piece of psychedelic songwriting, pressed to LP (including some indie-store-exclusive coloured vinyl) by A Joyful Noise.
