A fusion of new electronic synths combined with their old indie lamentation - experimentation? Sure. Excellence? Not quite.
The New Abnormal breaks The Strokes' seven-year silence with a burst of infectious pop-rock. And whilst their melodies may be borrowed, the album's energy is all their own.
Melody’s Echo Chamber is a self titled record released in 2012 that combines in the most intoxicating way the enveloping dissonance of shoegaze with the dreaminess of psych-pop. The album, dreamt up by French producer Melody Prochet, flows like water from love-filled track to lovelorn track, for loveless people who still believe in joy, and creates the kind of indescribable sonic aura every psych artist seeks.
