Premiere – Peace Lilly by Joel Robert Melton

October 28th, 2012

Sometimes, when you listen to so much new music and artists everyday like we do, you get real tired. You know, trying to discover a leader, someone that sounds unique, like no one else..Its not that I am looking for the next inventor of the wheel, but its nice to hear truly inspiring music or artist. Besides, there are so many great bands out there, which makes it real hard to make a difference. 6 months ago, I have written about a seriously nasty MF, Joel Robert Melton, Who I have discovered while he had won the respectable 2nd spot on the yearly Bandcamp Hunter countdown. I was struck by the originality, by the power of his music, the awesome guitars…The whole thing made me want to go back to my druggie days, smoke a joint or two or ten, lay down, put on headphones, and drift away, to a place where you are able to think again, be creative, and most importantly, feel. Couple of weeks ago when JRM wrote to me telling me about a new track he was completing, I was kinda hesitant, not sure how I should react if the track would not meet the high standards he had created half a year earlier. I got the track ‘Peace Lilly’ (which is the title of a future EP)2 days ago and to tell you the truth…I cant stop listening to it ever since. First of all, this psychedelic piece makes me want to use whatever he is on…Secondly, his guitars, kill me. This beautiful song, is not arranged like your typical verse chorus verse chorus type arrangement. There are 2 hypnotic parts that grow on you from the very first listen. Although real hazy and cloudy, you could tell it is carefully crafted, sounding just the way great music should be made. I am honored to premiere this track and this artist and we really thank him for the inspiration….

Wounded Animals

February 15th, 2012

This is one creative MF. Joel Robert Melton sounds like no one else. ‘Ghost’, his debut, has earned him a respectable #2 spot of 2011’s Bandcamp Hunter yearly rundown and reached our 2011 top 69. This time around, with ‘Wounded animals’, the musician in him sounds like he is hurting to come out, and bursts with creativity and originality. His songwriting so unique, those guitars belong to a different decade, times of progressive rock monsters, those angelic background vocals and the whole nine, man, I’m fuckin speechless. Give some respect to artists of a different kind, ones that hopefully will stay with us for a long time. Support great art and buy this monster on a name your price kinda deal.

‘Ghost’ by Joel Robert Melton is a bedroom Masterpiece. Actually, even if he didnt record it in a bedroom, it still is a masterpiece. Those 8 songs are so sweet sounding, and these guitars, you got to listen to it.

This gorgeous gem was released on 01 January 2011 plus an option ..”For a limited time I am making these handmade packages for ‘Ghost’ on CD. Each one is completely unique, including the hand drawn artwork and layout. This is a completely DIY undertaking on my part, and that means laptop burned discs and recycled jewel cases (no fancy fresh bulk pressed stuff here folks). However, I do put a lot of time and love into the artwork and design, and I make each one special. No two packages will be exactly alike”….

…”all music written and produced by joel robert melton. This album was recorded in the Fierce creatures studio space & in Katie’s bedroom in Fresno, Ca. this album is dedicated to Jay Melton, my father, and to the memory of Christopher Rees, my friend”…
