Sandycoates is the alter ego of Greg Moore, better known as one half of Oakland, California’s Moore Brothers. As Sandycoates, Greg has recently been collaborating with local producer Velvet Mornings and the Melody Memory EP is the result.
Like a late night mix tape that smoothly runs the gamut from folk and baroque pop to new wave and dream pop , the Melody Memory EP plays like a survey of Sandycoates’ favorite records. With lots of danceable beats and layered synthesizers, this record might seem a bit of a left turn for Greg but fans of the Moore Brothers will instantly recognize the trademark dense harmonies and unconventionally catchy hooks. An amalgamation of the Cocteau Twins, the Notwist and Bread, this is a record that will appeal equally to fans of the Postal Service, the Left Banke, and Seafeel. Antenna Farm is pleased to present these songs on cd as well as a limited-run 12” audiophile vinyl with alternate covers designed and hand screened by our friends over at Essen.
