Every once in a while an album comes along that floors me. Out of left field this nugget of music beauty appears and takes over my ears for weeks. Painting pictures of hazy days and melancholy nights. Walking that fine line between psychedelic and sober. Existential and down to earth. That album as of late is Melody's Echo Chamber. A mix of Blonde Redhead's melancholy breeze, Tame Impala's psychedelic haze and late eighties shoegaze courtesy of Lush. It's dreamy, sleepy, drugged-out and at times quite melancholy and beautiful.

Melody's Echo Chamber's namesake, singer and musician Melody Prochet is definitely living in the past, and we're the better for it. A mix of 60s french pop, 70s psychedelic and 80s alternative, her debut album is an aural fix like you've never heard. Or at least haven't heard it in some time. On opening track `I Follow You' she swoons like a lovelorn Kazu Makino(as if she wasn't lovelorn already) over a melancholy guitar line before the chorus comes in filled out with wavering, strummed electric guitar. Imagine Tame Impala and Blonde Redhead collaborating together and that should give you a pretty good idea of where Prochet is at on this excellent debut. `Crystallized' continues the acid-battered sound of Tame Impala even more. So much so that when you check the liner notes and see that Tame Impala's main guy Kevin Parker produced and played on this album you aren't surprised at all. Melody Prochet's quiet, sleepy vocals are a perfect match for Parker's technicolor-meets-bong water-stained production values. Any other combination of musician and producer and this wouldn't be Melody's Echo Chamber.

I'm all about nostalgia and wading in the waters of the past.

Melody Prochet is a classically trained Parisian who has taken her classical training into mind-bending new musical directions. Melody's Echo Chamber is a very appropriate name for her impressive debut release. Her psychedelic, reverb-drenched songs create a sound that display influences that range from early Syd Barret-influenced Pink Floyd to the shoe-gazing 90's movement that included bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Galaxie 500, Ride, Lush, & Curve. Melody uses her voice as an instrument to create a trance-inducing, trippy effect. Therefore it is no surprise to note that the release was produced by Tame Impala's Kevin Parker who also plays all instuments along with Melody. The influences by Mr. Parker are evident here although Melody is responsible for creating her own sound with her excellent voice. The release was also recorded in Perth, which points to even more influence by Tame Impala, who mainly record in Australia. Other influences also flow in & out such as 60's French Pop & Lysergic Dream Pop, as well as electronica, although the overall dreamy, narcotic sound of the LP sounds surrounded by full Analog-drenched beauty. Although Melody is influenced by Tame Impala, the overall sound is fully realized by Ms. Prochet. The whole LP flows very well & clocks in at about 45 minutes. Highlights include "Crystallized", "Bisou Magique", "Endless Shore", & "Snowcapped Andes Crash". All in all, an excellent debut by Melody. While listening to this recording, one would be wise to follow the words of Mr. John Lennon to "Turn Off Your Mind-Relax and Float Downstream". HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! SMRZ!!!

This album should be squarely in my wheelhouse - neo-psychedelic pop from a sweet-voiced French singer. I like it and would tend towards giving it 3 1/2 stars. What it seems to need is slightly better, more engaging songs. The sounds are nice, and the album provides atmosphere; however, I have a hard time with repeat listens without songs that grab me.

Vivid and beautiful. Just got this randomly, almost by accident, and it is such a happy discovery. Give it a listen, it is definitely the music which will do the talking here.

As a musician, I am quite impressed and pleased with the sonic colors. Lovely.

I bought this cd on the strength of the song Some Time Alone. Although the rest of the material doesn't measure up to that particular tune it's not a bad album. It's kind of like rainy-Sunday-morning-cup-of-coffee -with-some-Bailey's-in-it-while-you-think-of-old-girlfriends music. Does that make any sense ? I didn't think so. Very melancholy and delicate while still sounding a bit threatening. I do love her voice. Maybe go a little easier on the "echo" next time.

A refreshing find -- thanks to Amazon recommending it to me -- as Melody's Echo Chamber strikes me as a spiritual successor to Broadcast. Since we sadly won't be getting any more Broadcast albums, I'm happy that there are still music makers out there bringing dreamy, shoegaze music with a pop sensibility but a rock heritage. Excellent drumming, great composition in general, judicious use of noise and synths.

I think the first half of the album is stronger than the last, but in this case that means that the back half of the album is mostly just "OK." Hardly bad, and still enjoyable.

Several purple hyaena gather nightly and pleasure themselves while watching kierra footage as synthie pal sings and rests fingers apron stringy new sound products . The doube xx sings hardy like over caustic bass relief and parker benchmarks... Enjoy evident and satisfactorite!
