IAC Station: Zing! Flip! Squash!

WATERPLANET is the work of musician/artists Millie Landrum and Jim Hesser. Melodic, throttling, dreamy, and dark—WATERPLANET’s art-house psychedelia emerges from the finest post-punk and pop. Just guitar, percussion, and voice.

"Take some elements of Belly, Pixies & The Doors, mix & serve. An original creation."

(Steve Saulsbury)

"...Though creatively distinct, [WATERPLANET's] music taps the stylistic vein of artists like Sonic Youth and the Velvet Underground. This is that would be warmly welcomed radio."

(Ryan Hoffer, A&R, Shuteye Records)

Been recording again of late. In the past few days finished up drum track and backing vocals for James' song "Don't Cry" for our upcoming release. Also recently completed mix on "Love Song", and "Frankenstein" is nearly done!

Hello Waterplanet fans,

Have not been active on this site in ages, but have decided to get back into it (always loved this site, just got sidetracked, I guess). We have brand new recordings that I'll post soon for your enjoyment - "Lemmings" and "Gogogo" for now. Also have several more in the works.

Tjhanks for the add to the station. I think that the guitar riff is a bit Neil Young but that wasn't my intention. I like Belle & Sebastian and come from the same town as Badfinger, so that might be why you think that! I have another project which you might like the music. Its a band rather than the solo project - Cheers, Fire Chief 5

New WATERPLANET website being constructed, and oh so much improved. The Waterplanetarium ( is nice, but this is nicer. Features music, pics, comments, bio, calendar, the usual. And a few meteors and dung beetles.

Artist Cindie Landrum just posted two great neo folkedelic songs, "Underwater" and "Train". Both were recorded in WATERPLANET's Luxurious Basement Studio. To hear them got to her IAC site, or listen to my IAC station zing! flip! squash! radio.
