Mellowdrone - Beautiful Day


It's rare when you’re able to come across a band that just blows you away. It's even rarer when you come across that band when they are still unknown. It's near impossible to come across that band while at show.

Well, friends, I struck gold one night in February of 2004. While at a show to see a band from Canada called Metric, I was blown away by the opening performance, which was Mellowdrone.

They opened with the above-cited song. The bass shook my insides and made my feet want to move with the rhythm. The best I can do to try to describe this band and their music is if you can imagine taking the bass and drums from R & B songs and mix it with dark, mysterious melancholy lyrics.

I find that Mellowdrone is best served on cold dark days.
Enjoy, Fakie readers.

Rocksteady may be an expert in music, but he sure is no expert in grammar.

Band discoveries.
Yah, I discovered Depeche Mode waaay before they got popular and sold out. They didn't have a proper synth then and used a C64 hooked up to a tape deck with slow eject.
Man, those were the days.
