Today Fat Possum announces the first commercial release from Melody's Echo Chamber, a split 7" with Unknown Mortal Orchestra due July 31. Alongside "Crystallized," the lead track from Melody, recently released online and celebrated as "a thing of propulsive dream-pop beauty" by the NME, is UMO's cover version of the Melody's Echo Chamber album cut "Endless Shore." You can take a listen to all three of the aforementioned tracks above and pre-order the single here.
Melody's Echo Chamber's self-titled debut full-length is set for a Sept. 25 release on Fat Possum. Recently recorded and mixed with Tame Impala's Kevin Parker in Perth and at her grandparents' beach house in Cavalière in France, the album is a kaleidoscopic fusion of psych rock and warm hypnotic pop.
