Jay Gonzalez: The Bitter Suite EP (2015)
He's got a new one that just came out called Back To The Hive, and you should definitely snag it... but I thought I'd post 2015's Bitter Suite EP instead. At 5 songs in about 13 minutes, it's more like a maxi-single than an EP, a brief suite of segued songs, and it's just great: Relentlessly catchy baroque pop blending those Wilson-like acts with some 70s McCartneyisms and the tricked-out revivalist pop sounds of Elephant 6 bands like the Apples in Stereo and Olivia Tremor Control. It's over before you know it, a mad rush of sun-kissed pop that sends you back to cue it up one more time.
You can buy it on Bandcamp.
Here's a live performance of the whole suite:
