Medication’s Mikey Hyde – Favorite Albums


Musician Mikey Hyde recently provided us with a list of his favorite albums, which you can find below.  Hyde is best known as the architect behind the band Medication, which has served primarily as a home recording-project for Hyde since 2008.  Following the release of Medication’s debut 7″ Don’t Die b/w Fog, Hyde recorded and released Medication’s excellent debut LP, This Town, in 2010 on HoZac Records.  In its review of the album, the LA Times stated that This Town “reverberates with a brittle loneliness and melancholy that is counterbalanced by the raw emotion that informs Hyde’s painfully honest lyrics and minimalist song structures…The tones might be dark grays and browns, but there’s a lyrical and energetic life in the grooves of this record. This is only Medication’s second release, but expect great things from Hyde.”  Check out the following video of Medication’s performance of the song Don’t Die (with Stefan Christensen on lead guitar – we examined Christensen’s favorite albums in a prior post: Stefan Christensen’s Favorite Albums of 2018):

Medication followed up its debut LP with the release of the EP Judgment Day in 2011 on Sacred Bones Records.  Last year, Christensen’s C/Site Recordings released Medication’s most recent project, Daily Affirmations.
