The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #27 - Melody's Echo Chamber

When it comes to year-end lists, y'all know I don't mess around. I don't post my picks from the previous year for weeks after the next year has started. In 2012, there was a bounty of music that entered the world that made me deliriously happy to be blessed with the sense of sound. So I pondered, marinated, and contemplated for weeks. Music from 2012 has been digested for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And now, friends, it's time. Time to share with you what I consider the cream of quite a crop indeed. You might see things omitted here that you think should be on a Best Of list. This list isn't what I think you want to read. This list is what I feel about last year. If it's not here, I either didn't spend enough time with it or just didn't love it enough. A big thank you to all of the artists who created the music that I fell in love with last year.

WHO: Melody's Echo Chamber

WHAT: Melody's Echo Chamber

WHEN: September 2012

WHERE: Fat Possum

WHY: We all know that Paris is pretty cool, generally speaking. Musically, Parisians are also pretty darned cool. Melody's Echo Chamber, led by a ridiculously cool chanteuse, is, wait for it, cool. With Kevin of Tame Impala producing it, this record was going to start off on the right foot immediately, and the gorgeous swirl of psych and lounge and that certain something makes it a mighty fine listening experience. The more I listen, the more I like.  

MY JAMS: "I Follow You" "Some Time Alone, Alone" "Bisou Magique" "Endless Shore"
