The first authoritative compilation of American dream pop artist Happy Rhodes, whose singular songwriting and four-octave vocal range emanated from the pastoral confines of upstate New York in the 1980s.

Her melding of classical music influences with synthesizer and acoustic guitar, and her enchanting and idiosyncratic singing, are favourably compared to heralded English chanteuse Kate Bush. Fans of such artistic pop music would be remiss to overlook Rhodes’s similarly remarkable and otherworldly sonic transmissions, traversing tales of dreamers, outsiders, lovers and other lovely and terrifying creatures born of a wellspring of wild creativity and bold imagination.

Affectionately remastered from the original tapes, Ectotrophia gathers essential songs from Rhodes’s mid-'80s salad days, many written when she was just a teenager—wildly ahead of her time and unafraid to bare her soul to regional audiences, the ectophiles who’d eventually coin an entire sub genre of pop music in her honor. Dive deep into ecto, with the woman who started it all.

Please note that Ectotrophia is currently not in store but is an imported title from an overseas supplier.

Most of the time it takes around 2-3 weeks for the item to arrive here and be sent out but it can take longer if there are any delays.
