MUSIC by Matthew
“Just Mel is making music for our era. They are watching the madness and responding: “Eight Seconds on the Raging Crab” asks the listener to forge time for music, to gift ourselves space where we can make it the sole object of our attention and maybe return to the world with a little more clarity.”

Friend From Home
Friend From Home is the collaborative efforts of Matt Boerner and Isabelle Kelley, writing songs about nostalgia, pals, and moving across the country together.
Freshman Biology calls Top 5,000 Saddest Anime Deaths “a three-part reflection on the silver linings of overwhelming changes.” The music embodies this so clearly. Every song oozes the camaraderie you feel in a cramped basement show and it is not hard to imagine fans calling any further work they make “healing music.” I also wanted to note that these tracks are deceptively well-mixed. Underneath the lo-fi aesthetic, you can hear the care that went into the small details.
