Benji Compston is back with another taste of his Jelly Boy project, revealing the breezy and bustling "Lavese Las Manos".
Having shared the fuzz-fuelled lead single, "Give Up And Gamble" last month, Jelly Boy is back with another golden guitar tune that oozes a mixture of Elliott Smith and Benji Compston's former group Happyness.
On the new single, he explains, "I met a guy once who told me how he once lost something precious down the U-bend of a sink and assumed it was irretrievable, only to have a more practically minded person remind him what a U-bend is for. I guess that’s what this song is about. I also compulsively wash my hands and like Lorca."
Jelly Boy's debut EP Everybody Is A Universe was recorded on both sides of the Atlantic, with Mac DeMarco having lent his home studio in LA for tracking. Compston plays every instrument across the five tracks.
