Inspired by the film 'Medicine For Melancholy' is the story of two African-American twenty-somethings who wake up in bed together having no recollection of how they arrived there. There's a connection. They give themselves over to it. Wandering the streets of San Francisco on a Sunday afternoon, the pair take in the sights of the city less seen in today's cinema. As day gives way to night and their heads swirl further with the euphoria of pleasures both physical and intellectual, the immediacy of their previous physical encounter leads them to explore each other in a succession of moments so intimate the vulnerability they share changes them forever. Music For Melancholy features tracks that recall the journey that these two unlikely lovers take toward togetherness and understanding.
