Really excited to lift the lid on news of the latest signing to Weird World. Melody’s Echo Chamber is the name given to the work of Paris-based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Melody Prochet. Possessing a penchant for wild-eyed psychedelia, homespun motorik rhythm and an effortless flair for the sort of melodic classicism redolent of chamber song, Prochet is at once both an aficionado of pop’s outer limits and off-kilter to its expectations.
Her incredible, eponymous debut album, recorded between Perth (with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker) and her grandparents’ beach house in Cavalière in France, is due for release through Weird World in the autumn of 2012.
Lots more news on all this to follow very shortly, but first, check out “Endless Shore” – an early song from the record that Melo’s US label (Fat Possum) shared earlier in the year. Heady / heavy / perfect in every way.
