We're excited to announce the release of our brand new, 22-song, 2-disc retrospective album, "Cheers And Echoes"! The compilation spans all of our studio albums going all the way back to 1998, and also includes a brand new song called "Mrs. Elliott" and a new live recording of "Lanigan's Ball", recorded at the Turning Stone Casino in 2014.
Often backing Mike Oldfield's best pop work ("Moonlight Shadow", "To France") Maggie Reillys solo effort ECHOES is filled with progressive rock production. The lead track "Everytime We Touch" is a dreamy, memorable love song (offered in two versions) and every track on this wonderful album will have listeners wanting more.
Their third record is a series of (r)evolutionary instrumental ruminations on touring and the homogenous effects of globalization. With shorter songs and expanded catchiness, "City Of Echoes" is Pelican's "pop album". After exploring Earth's melodicism, Goatsnake riffery, and Hum post-rock textures, they've now decided to drastically reduce their song length and deliver a driving rock record. "One minute you're being sucked down by an undertow of surging, cascading guitar riffs and crashing drums, and the next you're being lulled to sleep at the bottom of an ocean of soothing ambience. A positively elemental album for scope, ambition, and vision.
Kurtz Mindfields is a new artist keen on electronic music & vintage synthesizers, in the lineage of early Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Vangelis, Robert Rich.
An album that fades in – grinding and beeping like a space shuttle returning to Earth – Born in the Echoes is the first LP in five years from the Chemical Brothers. It's a journey back home for the big beat or stadium dance duo, just like that spaceship intro implies, and one with all the necessary mutations. The dark, otherworldly, and prog rock sounds that kept many away from their 2010 release Further are back, although here they're framed much more attractively. Inspiration, innovation, and a well-chosen group of guest vocalists are rolled out sensibly, schooling the current EDM crowd on how to craft an album while balancing the heavy songs. With the hallucinatory, interlude-like "Taste of Honey" giving way to the Cate Le Bon feature on the Meco-meets-Nico title track, this album ebbs and flows as if the '70s Pink Floyd hadn't ignored disco. Speaking of, "Under Neon Lights" with St. Vincent as a robot siren is either Studio 54 on shrooms or The Matrix on acid. As usual, none of it is too garish even with all the loudness and chaos, and some of it is quite gothy and dark, including "EML Ritual" with Ali Love helping execute a mainstream dance tune that coolly acknowledges the passed-on genre of "witch house."
In the wake of the 2007 album titled "Rachel", Echoes comes back with "The Black Cat's Step", published in the year 2011 on the Musea Parallele label. The quartet from Rouen, France, strikes an acid and psychedelic rock, in which insistent guitar riffs filled with reverberation, and potent ambiance of Hammond organ melt down into a hypnotic trance, sprinkled with vocal arrangements that remain the band's personal signature. The band brings a French touch to the psychedelic temple that is being constructed on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, with bands like The Black Angels or Sleepy Sun, and immerses us in the delightful sounds of its glorious elders, from The Velvet Underground to King Crimson, from Syd Barrett to The Doors. If you fancy saturated atmospheres and shamanic inspirations, depart with Echoes in the footsteps of the dark feline.
