after releasing a string of singles earlier this year that culminated in a very strong debut ep, jackson phillips is already prepping more day wave material.  the oakland-based artist will release a new 7″ on november 6th via united kingdom upstart house arrest recs, and today he’s shared its a-side.  “come home now” continues to channel phillips’ affinity for a home-recorded aesthetic, though his muted, reverb-tinged vocals are accompanied this time by a brassy synth structure that fiercely competes for immediate attention with phillips’ signature arpeggiated guitar lines.  the beefed-up arrangement may be a nod to day wave’s exodus from the bedroom to the stage, but “come home now” also finds phillips becoming more comfortable in his role as an incredibly poignant lyricist; the song’s melancholy chorus perfectly belies its sunny exterior.  take a listen to “come home now” below.
