Pitchfork writes: “Jeremy Jay grew up in Los Angeles speaking exclusively French. If his idea of the cinematic differs from the glacial landscapes of Sigur RÃƒÂ³s, or the widescreen orchestration of Eluvium, blame it on Jean-Luc Godard. The lo-fi pop singer/songwriter’s releases evoke an urban boulevard of yet-unbroken dreams.
The simple arrangements, like Jay’s spoken-sung vocals, recall the solo work of Jonathan Richman, who has also bridged the pre-rock era with a punk sensibility, the Stop & Shop with the lesbian bar. Jay’s songs are best when the images they’re centered around have, like 50s icons James Dean or Marilyn Monroe, a certain dream-like hyper-reality.”
