To the best of my knowledge, Jackson Philips has yet to produce a bad tune under the moniker Day Wave. Seriously, everything that’s come out since 2014 has been solid.
The one-man bedroom-beats extraordinaire brings his talents to San Diego this evening, playing a show at The Casbah.
The Oakland, California musician tours with a full band, so I’m curious to hear how those flawless beats translate live.
Mr. Philips released his debut full-length The Days We Had back in May. The LP was preceded by countless catchy singles over the past few years.
His music is inspired by The Beach Boys and New Order, but I hear hints of The Cure and The Ocean Blue.
Doors are at 8:30, with the show starting at 930. There’s two openers scheduled tonight, Dear Boy and Blonder.
This post will update with vids and setlist.
