Jay Penaflor – Youth Algorithms EP
I remember how rapidly Jay Penaflor’s songs grapple-hooked my brain when I saw him perform at a Sofar Sounds session a few months ago. Reminiscent of Dylan, Reed and Rodriguez, the young Melbourne folkster clearly has a talent for vocal melodies. He sings with the calmness, coolness and innate wisdom you want in your folk music. His EP is short but repeatable, repeatable, repeatable.
Lend an ear to the man; his stuff is pretty hard not to like.
