Bachelor — the collaborative project of Jay Som (Melina Duterte) and Palehound (Ellen Kempner) — release their highly-anticipated debut album Doomin’ Sun! Doomin' Sun is a record steeped in friendship, one that began in 2017 when they first met in a Sacramento green room and experienced love at first sight. In January of 2020, they packed the entirety of Melina's recording equipment into two cars and headed to a rental house in Topanga, CA where over the course of two weeks, they wrote and recorded their first record together. In this space, they hybridized their individual songwriting talents, producing a collection that slips between moods with ease and showcases their lyrical prowess. On the bass-heavy rock song “Stay in the Car,” the duo paint a yearning portrait of a woman in a supermarket parking lot, “Anything At All” is a track with a chorus so playful it could be a schoolyard taunt. These songs tell stories that will surely be recognizable to listeners, especially when they offer up interpretations of modern life. “Drivin’ on to the next town/ Keeping the rubber side down/ But the danger is in my phone/ And the drug of an endless scroll,” Kempner sings on the downcast, country-inflected “Sick of Spiraling.” But on the album’s powerful opener "Back Of My Hand" it’s possible to hear echoes of Bachelor's foundation in the opening verse, “I’m your biggest fan/ Got your song in my head/ And your poster’s above my bed”.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
