Mt. Mélodie 10


Oslo NO   Jan 2016

Artist Bio

Influences:   Pheobe Bridgers, Adrienne Lenker, Bo Hansson, Do Make Say Think, My Bloody Valentine, BBC Radiophonic Workshop, King Crimson, PJ Harvey, Nick Drake, 10cc, Yes, Lars Hollmer, Motorpsycho, Beach Boys, Radiohead, Teenage Fanclub, Aquaserge, Francoise Hardy, Protomartyr

This will be my 6th FAWM, I mainly write indie/psych/folk rock tunes, but not afraid to dive into more electronic and experimental music for variation.

I'm a bit busy with finishing my second album these days, but hope to find some time and inspiration to write at least a couple of new tunes and do some collabs.

I sing and play guitar, bass, keyboards, omnichord, theremin, autoharps, zither, melodica, clarinet, musical saw, noisy gadgets and then program/fake the things I can't play.

I've released an album and EP with material from earlier FAWM's and 50/90's, and working on my second full length album set for a summer/fall 2021 release.

    Hi, I just about managed to hit my 14, although not all my tracks have demos and there were a couple of weird tracks thrown in. Let me know if you'd like to collab again some time.

  • @santadharma  Feb 15

    Thanks so much for your comment and sorry were really busy and slow to respond. Yes we did use the space echo on the vocals too 😊

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 12

    I'm hearing;
    Your Moms sibling is a landmine
    Pizza delivery
    Psych Ward
    LJ & me

    Care to make any corrections or should I roll with that?

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 12

    Took me a minute but I found the 10 secs, thanks

  • @kahlo2013 Feb 12

    Awesome!!! Thanks!!!

  • @kahlo2013 Feb 11

    Hi, not to nag but wondering if you are able to make progress on the anything goes EC?

  • @zecoop  Feb 11

    Yeah, no worries and certainly no pressure! If I do come up with anything new that makes me think of you straight out, I will shoot it over. 😀

  • @zecoop  Feb 11

    (let me know if you do have any interest and I'll send you the proper files)

  • @zecoop  Feb 11

    If you have any interest in trying for something on Voyager (vocally or musically), you are more than welcome! (title/topic can change to whatever) I think you are right about the 6/8, 8/8 although I think there's a 2/4 or 4/8 or something in there every once in a while. This happens a lot with me - I don't have any idea what I am doing, but just play what the song tells me. 😀

  • @zecoop  Feb 11

    Thanks for the listens... I am so far behind but starting to catch up. Work has been insane, but I loved digging into your music. And for Polar Bear, the, ahem, jazz organ at the end is my favorite too. I struggled with the desire to put it in earlier, throughout the song. I may still do that.

  • @guatecoop  Feb 9

    Strange that you say that, as it occurred to me this morning that I hadn’t gotten notifications about your songs!! Why? Anyway, it was nice to start off my day with your music.

  • @kahlo2013 Feb 9

    Here’s the chain, so send your 10 seconds to pipewrench67. I’m looking forward to what you create!

    Hi here is 10 or so seconds for the Anything Goes EC #3 YOU are up!

    When you are done please email me your full minute or so song as I will stitch and send your 10 sec to the next person in line!

  • @izaakalexander Feb 6

    Nice call, picking up my Andrew Bird influence. I saw him live once, in Reno, and it was an unforgettable show. Around the time of the Noble Beast album, I think.

  • @jeustan  Feb 5

    Thanks, it's good to be back! I see you also listen to Protomartyr, they're from my area. Happy FAWM!

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 5

    Mt. Mélodie! Hey, thanks for stopping by and commenting on my lyrics-only entry. I really appreciate it. Wanted to let you know I’ve got music up for it so if you have time to listen come on by my page. thanks again.

  • @scottlake Feb 4

    Welcome back! Open for another collab if that’s of interest to you

  • @evolvemysound  Feb 4

    Thank you for the nice comments on one of my favorite songs! I appreciate the feedback!

  • @engebretsen  Feb 3

    Hi and txh for comments on "Fallen Angel" It is basically software synths on it. So I need a deep male voice on it to do it even better for sure. Looking forward to youre stuff.

  • @stewdean  Feb 3

    Hi, I've got some lyrics for you! I gave some of your other stuff a listen, very good. The songs I'm doing are all based around parts of London and are quite dark but I've created a song called 'Kite HIll' which is about Parliament Hill that overlooks London. I'm still learning how FAWM works so how do I get them to you?

  • @stewdean  Feb 1

    Hi, this is my first Fawm - I'm looking forward to our collab!
