LA’s multi-talented Mexican-American songwriter, performer and producer Joel Jerome has released his new album Super Flower Blood Moon via Dangerbird Records. Nodding to the Latin artists of his parents’ generation, the folk-pop collection pays homage to the music of his childhood, with additional sonic references spanning Guided by Voices, Angel Olsen and Fleet Foxes.


Since first emerging with his crucial SoCal indie pop outfit Dios (Malos) in 2004, Jerome has become renowned for his work with artists such as LA Witch, La Sera and Cherry Glazerr at his own Psychedelic Thriftstore recording studio. Throughout the pandemic, the collaborative influence of Dangerbird A&R director Jim Fairchild led him to step away from his studio gear and take a simpler approach to songwriting. For nearly two weeks, he wrote one song per night using only his phone’s voice recorder and a basic four-track app. To Joel, it felt like a sort of challenge. “They just wanted to hear the bare soul of the song, which I totally understand,” he shares. “It really helped fertilize the creative space for me.” He then joined forces with powerhouse producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith) to bring each track to life. The raw beginnings of Super Flower Blood Moon blossomed into an emotive stunner of a collection. 


” …strumming his acoustic guitar to a catchy melody about letting go of egotistical ambitions, bringing in a 

Californian stoner blend of folk-inspired melodicism […] “Nobody Like You” is concerned with being in the 

present and taking a breath from this crazy world we’re living in.” Remezcla

“Quiet and compelling, you can feel the folk on ‘Nobody Like You.’” KCRW “Today’s Top Tune”

“A warm hug of heartfelt, wondrous, dark folk […] nothing short of stunning.” Atwood Magazine

“Falling Star” emphasizes the Latin American tradition of the former facet before dipping into a jaunty, 

piano-led pop chorus that recalls the psych-pop sounds of 1970s Southern California.” FLOOD

“Joe Cocker conjuring single filled with organ, shakers, gospel-style vocals” SPIN

“Behind-the-Scenes Indie King” LA Weekly
