Dan Melchior – Favorite Albums


Dan Melchior, one of our favorite artists and musicians, recently provided us with a list of his favorite albums, which are examined below.  Melchior emigrated from London, England to the United States in 2000 and almost immediately established himself as an prominent force in the underground music scene after releasing numerous solo projects and records with Dan Melchior’s Broke Revue and Dan Melchior und das Menace (“and the Menace” in German). Melchior has collaborated with several musicians over the years including, most notably, Billy Childish and Holly Golightly.  If you are unfamiliar with any of Melchior’s music, which is unquestionably distinctive and possesses more heart and soul than the majority of “garage-rock” records released in the last decade, we strongly recommend checking out the albums Thankyou Very MuchChristmas for the CrowsHello, I’m Dan Melchior; and Catbirds & Cardinals.

In addition to being a prolific songwriter, Melchior is an accomplished artist, and frequently posts his artwork on his Facebook and Instagram (melchiordan) accounts where you can contact him for purchase inquiries.
