♕☿sʏɴᴛʜɪᴀCND9's ✪♥♫ one of the most honest religious albums ever written to date, Jay lays down his nightmares and ambitious with his signature densely layered production. Prayer, Show the World, and Eagle Feather, Falcon Claw are still some of Jay's best songwriting with melodies still stuck in my head Favorite track: Eagle Feather, Falcon Claw.

about

At it's heart, Control Me is an honest expression of my love for the Gospel. Most of the compositions were conceived as humble little hymn-like ukulele tunes. Following my tradition of unnecessary embellishment; I layered the songs beyond recognition until they became what they are now: schizophrenic heaps of sound. Everything from Shoegaze to Prog Rock to Schmaltzy 50's Pop is emulated beneath layers of manipulated waveforms and vinyl samples.
