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.
