Embark on a revolutionary auditory journey with “Hot Spoon, Cold Mango” – the brainchild of composer Stephen Meeker, where sound isn’t just heard but seen in vivid visual hallucinations. This groundbreaking technology, showcased in the original album “Paws on Ears,” is set to redefine the way we experience music.

Hot Spoon, Cold Mango

The mind-bending experience of “Hot Spoon, Cold Mango” combines cutting-edge audio design and neural stimulation, transporting listeners to surreal dimensions without the need for external visuals. From soaring through fantastical landscapes to dancing with ethereal beings, the power of sound paints a mesmerizing picture. The compositions, including tracks like “Je ne parle pas francais,” “My Teddy Bears Look at me Funny,” and “The Statistician’s Melancholic Marching Band,” promise an array of mind-bending experiences. Beyond entertainment, “Hot Spoon, Cold Mango” serves as a tool for mindfulness, therapy, and unlocking creative potential.

The project’s sole member, Stephen Meeker, draws influences from time travel, space, and random thoughts, crafting compositions with classical structure infused with global musical elements. While the project is yet to grace notable gigs or festivals, the recordings and productions, including the recent album, were curated within the confines of a creative enclave overlooking a rabbit burrow. The album’s concept revolves around sharing glimpses of the artist’s everyday worlds, translating sights and feelings into sound for others to briefly witness. As the artist aptly puts it, “I am an echo of light refraction fragments trapped between parallel mirrors. If only you could see me disappear, I would know I was at least seen once before I died by another living being.” ~ HSCM

In the shadowy realm where indie-folk, dirty electronica, and arena rock converge, London-based artist and producer Harry Houseago crafts his enigmatic musical identity under the moniker h. eldritch. His latest single, “Innocent Sinner,” is a dark and mystical journey that intertwines mischievous lyricism with ingenious fingerstyle guitar, culminating in a colossal cinematic chorus.

H. eldritch

Harry’s musical odyssey in 2023 has been nothing short of extraordinary, marked by four captivating sets at the Glastonbury Festival and an insightful feature in Wonderland Magazine’s ‘New Noise.’ Describing his previous single, “Amateur Anthropology,” the magazine applauded the meticulous blend of acoustic guitar craftsmanship, inventive electronics, and a vocal range that oscillates between tender falsetto and powerful primal roars—a nod to the indie scene of the ’90s. “Innocent Sinner” emerges as h. eldritch’s most definitive artistic statement, a captivating tale of a mischievous romantic tryst woven into the fabric of a festival-sized soundscape. With evocative imagery, atmospheric nuances, and a mercurial vocal performance, the track draws parallels with musical luminaries like Jeff Buckley, Ben Howard, and the folkier elements of Led Zeppelin.

As the tension steadily builds throughout the song, it crescendos into a climactic explosion of fuzzed-out acoustic guitar, echoing Harry’s defiant mantra, “I am innocent.” As “Innocent Sinner” paves the way for what lies ahead, 2024 promises to be an extraordinary year for h. eldritch—where the ghost and the machines converge in a musical spectacle like no other.
