Yeesh, Krill, J. Fernandez, New Diet 

When: Tue., Oct. 14, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $6
Humboldt Park bedroom-pop artist J. Fernandez makes the kind of sublime, richly developed songs that feel cozy, nostalgic, and brand-new all at the same time, like how a fresh, brand-new piece of vinyl still makes the rabid collector all fuzzy inside. Fernandez’s music has the needle-on-wax warmth built into it, which is part of what makes his new Memorize Now (Atelier Ciseaux) so enchanting. He easily blends sublime synths, nimble post-Krautrock bass, and ornate and delicate guitar-lines into splendid, hypnotic songs; the sharp songwriting and pleasant monotone singing give both “Cosmic Was” and the title track propulsion without disrupting their tranquility. This EP comes out today, and even though Fernandez’s official record release show isn’t till next month at the Whistler, he’ll have copies of Memorize Now for sale. —Leor Galil
