Melodium - The Island

by Eric Mast in ,

Melodium "The Dark Home" Melodium's new album available now here! The Island is Melodium's fourth album for Audio Dregs in the past decade, recorded on (and dedicated to) the Island of Oleron, off the coast of France. It continues to hone the twinkling acoustic/electronic melodies and lopsided rhythms that tumble like a large egg down a grassy hill. This time around Melodium has seamlessly merged the cool jet stream of his vulnerable vocal pop side with warm instrumental passages for an album that floats between waves of orchestral strings and fingerpicking guitar. An impressive and intimate collection of songs, both breezy and heavy, bright yet brooding, for an effect that is dramatic while still being understated.

$12 CD in matte eco-pak with design by E*Rock. $5 mp3s.

DMTV2: Mon Nov 21

by Eric Mast in

DMTV2 is a collection of experimental and psychedelic animation from around the world. The emphasis is on non-commercial, personal work. We seek pure vision. Some of the films push visual noise and glitch to the limit while others reach a peak of ambient degaussed bliss.


Highlights include David O’Reilly’s latest award winning film, The External World, and new films from James Mercer, Jacob Ciocci, Yoshi Sodeoka and Mirai Mizue. This year’s program includes films by comics artists from around the world: Michael DeForge, Jesse McManus, King Terry and Amy Lockhart. We are also proud to collaborate with artists like Alexandra Gorczynski, Duncan Malashock, and local artist Brenna Murphy for the first time.
