"Josh and Mer: From The Sea"

Portland duo Josh and Mer (previously Josh Schroeder and Meredith Adelaide) are no strangers to Kick Kick Snare. Recap with our last post which includes their track “So it Goes” here. As promised, Josh and Mer’s full-length album “Planet Music” is now being delivered fresh of the press.

“From The Sea” makes me nostalgic for the nineties when I used to listen to Smashing Pumpkins’ 1979 on repeat. Sitting shotgun, head leaning out the window with my hair whipping in every direction. Waving to the good looking faces smiling back, and at the same time kicking plenty of dirt up along the path. The production and vocal arrangement…seamless, each layer pristine and present. All part of an undeniable power that comes from being extraordinarily well paired, proven here.

If you’re in the Portland area, be sure to check out their upcoming showcase show at the legendary record store Music Millennium on November 4th. For more information, click here. - Kick Kick Snare


Planet Music LP was released October 4, 2011.
"From The Sea"



Songwriter Josh Schroeder and actress Meredith Adelaide met one cold and very early fall morning at the Little Nestucca River, in Oregon 2010. The two were on set as actors for a Levi's spec ad that featured the backdrop of the beautiful NW, and were called to action for a scene where Josh serenades Meredith in a tree. Trying to keep their minds off the cold between takes, Josh and Meredith began talking about art, life, music and their love of Portland, OR. They soon discovered that their common interests and ideas were a match, and shortly after began their artistic collaboration.

The duo released their full-length album, "Planet Music" on Oct. 4th 2011. It is available through their website, iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, and Music Millennium in Portland, Oregon. Josh and Mer recently composed the network theme song for the BBC Kids Channel in Canada and they lent their voices, instrumental talents, and production style to the recording of the theme song.

Blending their love of music with film, photography, and the Portland lifestyle, Josh and Meredith developed a concept to showcase their collaborative efforts and their work as individual artists. They joked at themselves being "hipsters" and created a blog they call "Hipster Decadence" ( They keep fans, friends, and colleagues up to date on their creations through Hipster Decadence.
