Can anybody recommend me some modern artists/albums who use the mellotron? I've been digging the sound of this instrument a lot lately.
early Crimson made extensive use of the mellotron, it's my favourite instrument
In the Court of the Crimson King is also a good example, but they've removed all of the versions on YouTube of the actual song as far as I can tell.
didn't read the post
no, no one uses
I don't even think any modern musician knows how one works, unless you mean the shit "digital" ones that are literally exactly the same as dime a dozen synths
I think the Fleet Foxes used it once or twice. XTC and the Dukes of Stratosphere used it but that might not be considered "modern". Foxygen and Magic Castles have used em. Just look for throwback psych and prog bands.
