Melody's Echo Chamber isn't the first musical project of French chanteuse Melody Prochet, but it's the one she's most invested in, the one that's got her excited, the one that as she says in a recent interview on Noisevox's Face Time, is "her baby". Its predecessors in Prochet's life included a short-lived, rather gimmicky duo (though with some memorable songs and videos) called Narcoleptic Dancers, which the singer would rather not discuss, and My Bee's Garden, a Parisian pop outfit, now defunct but with whose members Prochet is still in touch.
In fact, it was while performing with My Bee's Garden that Prochet first met Tame Impala's Kevin Parker (you can also hear that story on Face Time) who went on to play a significant role in her life and career, because it was his influence, inspiration and knack for dreamy fuzz 'n grooves that led to the creation of the Echo Chamber. In Parker's home base of Perth, Australia, he produced the lovely debut album, packed with dreamy, enchanting swirly pop, with highlights including the dreamy, watery "Quand Vas Tu Rentrer?", the similary-themed "Some Time Alone, Alone" with a sparkling, chimey riff, the wobbly groove of "You Won't Be Missing That Part of Me", which Prochet told us was inspired by a rough breakup with an ex, "Crystallized", a fuzzy stomper that's the most Parker-sounding of the lot, and the charmer of a closer "Be Proud of Your Kids", featuring samples of the voices of some petits gosses for whom Prochet used to baby-sit.
One of the more irresistible debuts you will hear in 2012 is one you should discover, as the French say, aussi tôt que possible, and it goes by the name of Melody's Echo Chamber.
