On And On Until The Dawn

Melody’s Echo Chamber “Some Time Alone, Alone”

Melody Prochet’s voice bears a strong resemblance to that of the late Broadcast singer Trish Keenan, and her music often sounds like a more rocking version of Broadcast circa the early 00s. So, naturally, I’m a mark for her first record as Melody’s Echo Chamber. But as much as it’s easy for me to peg this project as Broadcast-meets-Deerhunter, the substance of it is more slippery, and I find myself uncertain when trying to make sense of its emotional tone. At its best, it suggests a wide open chasm in the space between the singer’s reality and her desires, even when what she seems to want is kinda small and reasonable. You feel an absence on each track, but it’s that thing where you can’t figure out what you feel you’re missing.

Buy it from Amazon.
