    Bay Area-based multi-instrumentalist Jay Som (aka Melina Duterte) is already having quite the year, snagging a coveted spot on our Top 10 Songs of January list with her swelling, cinematic single “The Bus Song” and gearing up to release her debut LP, Everybody Works, on March 10th. What could possibly top all that? How about one billion dogs!

    That’s “1 Billion Dogs”, rather. The second single off Everybody Works entered the world via Pitchfork today, and it’s every bit as fuzzy as the title suggests. Though Duterte plays pretty much everything on the album, songs like “1 Billion Dogs” demonstrate her knack for nailing full-band compositions that could hold their own in the ring with any ’90s alt-rock hit. The guitars in this one are loud enough to blow your face off, but Duterte’s presence behind the mic is a lighthouse in the storm, showing the way to the squiggly solo at the end.
