Albums






~.~*~.~ (Spring)

Self-Released - March 5, 2021

~.~*~.~ (Spring) is a journal of poems, liquid fragments, field recordings, doodles, textures and nostalgia. The album blossomed from a season in quarantine ~ waking up with a balmy fragrant release of salty aromatics, hyacinths climax, and the glistening Adriadic in a pull between lithospherean belonging and isolation. It features friends from near and far.





Inflorescence

Self-Released - May 1, 2020


Inflorescence is an ambivalent embodiment of the cyclical nature of home - from belonging to longing, here and there. Home is where you are held. Held by connections to place, space, skin on skin, warm times, fleeting laughter and scent. Held by water, sound, unwavering potentials, imagined futures, olfactory imprint, gratitude. Released, let go, squeezing, transforming.





Scenes From A Dream

Jungle Gym Records - November 30, 2018

“JUNGLE GYM RECORDS presents "Scenes From A Dream", official return of the illustrious slowfoam (Madelyn Byrd). From the breathtaking abstractions of debut "lust + boredom", Byrd pushes even further towards the avant-garde, an artist at the peak of their creative power with a unique and developed voice that is at once timely and timeless. Here whispered synthetic microcosms are meticulously refined with a palate of chamber woodwind flourishes, precision field recordings and heavily processed vocal passages, woven together by the life-flow vignettes of rippling pools and instinctual momentum. From a place of both high art and universal accessibility, JGT38 finds grandiosity in the smallest of gestures... exclusively for JUNGLE GYM.”





Important Bodies

Self-Released -  06.12.2018

A collection of field recordings my partner and I took in Washington and California in the throws of love—created over the span of a week—capturing the whimsical and childlike nature of our early days together.

“conceived, recorded, and assembled over the span of two weeks in November & December 2018, using pretty much just a phone and a laptop... this is one side of a split album made in collaboration with slowfoam. this is a love story.”

Lust + Boredom

Jungle Gym Records - November 30, 2018

“JUNGLE GYM RECORDS presents "lust + boredom," official debut of Seattle's slowfoam. Drifting through the frothy waves we find ourselves with time to reflect on the past few years, and while the memories are quickly fading, the emotional toll weighs heavier than ever. Haunted voices of doubt and insecurity brush up against our ankles, darting in and out of a dark ambient chamber pop score. What began as a simple day at the beach has spiraled to familiar struggle, trying to keep our heads above water while trapped in the slow slow foam. Exclusively from JUNGLE GYM.”
