Fresh from our Kitchen Music Departement: "… tantalizing electric-groove-tastic rhythms coupled with Melody Prochet’s velvet larynx…" My Bee’s Garden is an english singing band from Paris and the project of Melody Prochet (shoegazing on the roof). Amongst their fans and supporters from outside of France are (besides us) Grizzly Bear or hypno-groove hipsters Tame Impala. Latter band have just asked My Bee’s Garden to join their European tour as special guest in early November, shortly before the debut album "Hunt The Sleeper" gonna be released (12.11., France 15.11)
My Bee’s Garden - On Tour with Tame Impala

If you are in bands in the vein of Stereolab, Pram, Grizzly Bear, Au Revoir Simone and alike this here is for you. You friends of Neo-psychedelic, Electroshoegazesongs, of a certain French touch, you should follow this invitation to visit her Garden. Over there and together with some friends she has seeded some fascinating plants.
Following a long serial of Melody’s participation in various bands and recordings, which hardly anybody outside of France will know, “Hunt The Sleeper” is her own debut. Her soft voice is a gateway to atmospheric, ethereal and intriguing songs, which seldom take a predictable path. Like the flight of the insect, which gave name to her garden, the sounds appear shimmering here and there, but will reveal their naturally given route finally.
This is sunshine pop just before the storm arouses.

Après avoir papillonné dans l’ombre pendant une poignée d’années, Melody, alias My Bee’s Garden, folâtrera en pleine lumière le 15 novembre prochain grâce à la sortie de son premier album Hunt The Sleeper, via Kitchen Music. Mieux encore, la Française trimballera son timbre caressant et ses mélodies fureteuses dans toute l’Europe à la faveur d’une invitation lancée par Tame Impala, le combo psyché ayant souhaité entendre la pop rétro-aérienne de l’artiste en ouverture d’une bonne partie de ses concerts sur le vieux continent. Pour vous préparer à l’action, écoutez l’un des extraits le plus alerte du LP inaugural à venir.
My French daze are far behind me, much more so than anything else i did in high school (unfortunately…ahem). I’m a tad delusional in my belief that if i were sent to Paris today i’d be able to hold my ground, but i would however be able to assimilate a bit better after hearing the tantalizing electric-groove-tastic rhythms coupled with Melody Prochet’s velvet larynx that make My Bee’s Garden. I’m jumping the gun a bit considering their album, Hunt the Sleeper, isn’t due until November 15th, but i can’t help myself. Here is there Myspace, which has two fantastic jammies, unfortunately not for download yet, and below is their beautiful rendition of Grizzly Bear’s “Cheerleader”… it does justice.
