I’ve had my eye on Melody Prochet of Melody’s Echo Chamber since the release of her self-titled debut LP way back in 2012. The stunning hazy psychedelic-drenched pop blew me away with singles like “Crystalized” and “Some Time Alone, Alone” and of course “I Follow You”.

There were a few unexpected surprises in this week’s show; some great new bands and new tracks from longtime favorites. Parenthetical Girls, who formed about 30 minutes South of here, have a new EP and it is superb; Alameda’s sophomore LP is pretty great as well. And the brand new track by Still Corners is… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: September 28, 2012
