|Disaster Is Your Mistress|
|The Snow returns for a third outing, Disaster is Your Mistress, its most complex and lushly orchestrated album to date. Veteran engineer Charles ‘Chicky’ Reeves (Radiohead, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, Tito Puente) navigates haunting classical flourishes, Motown horns and Beatlesque pop soundscapes to take the listener on an unexpected sonic journey. Think of Serge Gainsbourg hitching a ride with Carole King and Fiona Apple in a boat atop rolling rapids of champagne.

|I Die Every Night|
|The Snow's fantastic second album will accompany you through endless days and sleepless nights.|
|The Snow's magnificent debut album. Dark and smoky folk-rock featuring
songs of spiritual yearning in a post-religious world, cleaning products,
and love between an octopus and a starfish. Check us out on mySpace.|
|Melomane’s new EP of disaster-themed songs, recorded in a studio in the Pyrenees during a break from Melomane's August 2007 tour of France. It is their most rocking output to date, featuring the cynical/poetic/political lyrics of their first three albums, but wading into all-out guitar aggression, large-scale orchestral soundscapes, and bittersweet melodic heartbreak in turns. The EP features a collaboration with LA-based singer/songwriter Eleni Mandell, who lends her vocal abilities to Melomane’s first French-only number, Je Suis Une Allumette. |
|Melomane's third album. Contains the dark and clever lyrics of the first two albums, while exploring yet more rich and cinematic musical territory. |
|Melomane's outstanding second album. Maintains the intimacy and quality songwriting of Resolvo, with a slightly more muscular edge. |
|Melomane's outstanding debut album. Intimate and sparkling production, subtle and surprising lyrics. A classic! |
|Dead in the Water|
|Side project of Melomane frontman Pierre de Gaillande, featuring former members of Skeleton Key and Gogol Bordello. Sounds like Cat Power meets the Smurfs. |
|No They Do|
