The recording of Mild Meltdowns began in Autumn of 2016, when Miles Devine invited his ultimate studio band – Timothy Sneddon, Lachlan Earl and Oscar Henfrey – to his home studio to record a full length album alongside co-producer, SPOD (The Laurels, Richard in Your Mind, Straight Arrows).
We caught up with the band to ask them their Top Five Debut Albums
‘Top 5 Debut Albums by Raindrop
No1. Pink Floyd – Piper at the Gates of Dawn.
By far my most stand-out favourite debut album of all time. The perfect amount of raw, unstoppable energy that opened more cosmic doors than any band ever.
No.2 Grandaddy – Under the Western Freeway
A very special album to me. Grandaddy’s sombre but oh so dreamy vibe is a big influence on my songwriting and production.
No. 3 Air – Moon Safari
Ah, what I would give to be watching that album being made from behind the recording console. Some of the best recorded orchestral strings ever blended with crazy synth sounds. My Heaven.
No. 4. The Unicorns – Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone
The first and only LP of one of the coolest bands I’ve ever heard. Such a sweet amount of darkness, almost too dark at times, yet has one of the most playful vibes of any album I’ve ever heard
No. 5 The Avalanches – Since I Left You
This album changed my life. It taught me the beauty of LOFI sampling and how music doesn’t have to have any rules.
