jackson phillips will release his first ep as day wave, headcase, this friday.  the five-song effort is the culmination of the oakland singer-songwriter’s desire to learn guitar and to approach songwriting from a different angle, resulting in breezy, jangly pop songs heavily indebted to joy division and the beach boys.  headcase began streaming in full yesterday, and that means you can finally listen to its title track.  “headcase” contains some of the most honest lyricism phillips has offered to date wrapped inside soft synths and bernard sumner-inspired guitar melodies.  take a listen below.
