Though one-woman Oakland band Melina Duterte (aka Jay Som) put a lot of effort into Everybody Works, her first proper album emanates the kind of ease that makes it sound as if it arrived fully formed. Some artists, like Juana Molina and Chaz Bundick, just give off that vibe. If Duterte’s lyrics reflect youthful feelings of hope and discovery, the sophistication of the 22-year-old’s music, a shoegaze-meets-lite-funk take on bedroom pop, belies her age. Vancouver, BC, trio the Courtneys, by contrast, are a brasher proposition. On their second record, Courtneys II, they take a super-charged approach to garage pop with buzzing guitars, bubblegum-sticky choruses, and the pep-squad vocals of drummer Jen Twynn Payne, who sings about cross-country tours and vampire teenage boyfriends with equal enthusiasm.
