Melon Painting

New Melon Painting Album Available for Streaming & Download

With aid from Sanders Smith, Jon Cardiello, and Lukas Phelan, on his last day in Missoula, Montana, Cooper Hepburn recorded the songs that encompass Mountain (HOYA Recordings/Diet Pop Records), the new release under the moniker Melon Painting. Exposed, personal narratives endear in isolating, through-the-screen-door folk. Merging a jangly, laid-back simplicity with points of atmospheric ambiance, the record creates an immediate connection. Melon Painting is schedule to perform on Sunday, October 29 at DIY space Planet Phitness, with Marge and Neutral Shirt.

New Track: "Dog Walker" - Melon Painting

Mountain, the forthcoming release from Missoula transplant Cooper Hepburn, a.k.a. Melon Painting, is scheduled for arrival on October 1, courtesy of HOYA Recordings and Diet Pop. “Dog Walker” meanders in a loose but locked in folk groove, backend-anchored with a sprinkling of keys and guitar sprints. With a feel akin to Hello Shark, a semi-spoken, personal narrative anectdotally recalls before switching gears from a passive, sleepwalking recollection to a proactive push, with accompanying instrumental exclamations.
