The Windsong Spires By Echo Us Carries Listeners To A Different Galaxy In Latest Album

31 Aug

The Windsong Spires by Echo Us carries a deep level of transcendental magic throughout the entirety of their album. From the intense track of You Can Imagine with the vocals of Charlotte Enger and the percussion talents of Andrew Greene, the combination is nothing short of dynamic. The musical construction of the track has everything from magical keys of the piano, harmonies, and sounds of the woodwinds all cascading together to form a beautiful sound. Going along the elements of progressive rock, the intertwining of the intention behind the album also comes through. When focusing in on where Echo Us draws their inspiration, it should not be entirely surprising that the themes of space in sound and galaxy rock come through. The galaxy and orbital space the band creates with the airy constructions of the light keyboard and the reverbs creates something nothing short of what sounds like it came from an entirely different galaxy or astral plane. If one could grab all the positive elements of meditative music and spin it in something that holds weight musically, Echo Us comes pretty close. Similar bands that could be compared include the sounds of Reptar, St. Lucia, and Young Galaxy. If you are in the mood for something that carries fascinating musical sound, Echo Us delivers it.

Magnetic Ghost Gives A Glimpse Into Rural Psychedelia

19 Oct

With the sounds of Minneapolis band Magnetic Ghost, a feeling of wandering instills the listener’s ears while listening to Grand Canyon, amongst their other songs from Loss Molecules. Lyrics making references to walls, the world, and places in life, one who enjoys shoegaze meets post punk will be delighted while listening to Magnetic Ghost. Listeners will find similarities between the sounds of Magnetic Ghost with Sonic Youth, Spooky Black, and Young Galaxy. The unfiltered and raw sound of their music makes Magnetic Ghost stand out in the music world that is now sometimes full with auto tuning, mixes, and tracks being overdone. Loss Molecules reminds one of memories, open spaces, and a glimpse in the world of rural psychedelia.
