There is a very interesting tribute compilation in the works at the moment, and this artist really deserves a tribute. Rose Melberg has made so many wonderful songs in bands like The Softies, Tiger Trap, Brave Irene, Go Sailor, Knife Pleats and has also released several fine releases under her own name. She has been a huge inspiration for many indiepop artists, and some of them are now showing their love on this compilation.
The album will be released late Spring 2016 by February Records, and will feature among many others Rocketship, The Smittens, Band a Part, LAKE, Seapony, Transmittens, The Very Most (featuring Sarah Lowenbot) and Marc Elston.

Here is one of my favourite songs of hers, “Each New Day”, performed live at Cake Shop in 2006.
The song is from her album ‘Cast Away The Clouds’ on Double Agent Records.
