Chicago songwriter J. Fernandez will release his new album, Many Levels of Laughter, June 9, 2015 via Joyful Noise Recording Co. There's a motorik quality to his music that recalls American Analog Set or Stereolab, but there's a magic hour sunlight vibe to his melodies as well. It's a nice album and you can stream the lovely, autumnal "Read My Mind" below.

Fernandez will be touring this spring with a stint supporting Unknown Mortal Orchestra. He'll be in NYC this week, playing Bowery Electric on Friday (5/1) with Lazy Queen and Cluster Sun. Tickets are on sale. All dates are listed below...
