Emotional Eternal: Brilliant Red Vinyl LPWIGLP487X
Label: Domino Recordings
Release Date: 29th April
French modern psych pop royalty returns, in this shopkeeper's opinion you'd be hard pressed to find two finer psych records in the '10s than Melody Echo Chambers debut and follow-up. Beautifully textured, musically explorative and prone to taking one down magical paths of childlike wonder. If we're not playing this all year, we'll eat that zoetrope that comes with the vinyl.
For those who dig: French psych pop, modern psychedelic rock, soft electronic excursions. Stereolab, early Tame Impala, Pond, Mild High Club...
Emotional Eternal, the third studio album from Melody’s Echo Chamber, is a deeply human collection of songs full of prolonged moments of sonic transcendency – a record that clearly exhibits its maturity but still regards the world with a childlike wonder. Having swapped Paris for the clean air of the Alps, Melody hopes the record “has that uplifting quality. I made some big and impactful decisions and changes to my life. It took me to where it is peaceful, and I think the record reflects this.”
