A teaser worth talking about! (audio)
I don’t usually like posting teasers, but since it’s Lord Echo I’ll make an exception. Having been a fan since before the release of their first album, Melodies, I definitely got excited after hearing that there was an album on the way via the single, “Just Do You” (which you can read my thoughts on here). From what I can tell from this brief little preview, this LP should be a monster. It doesn’t deviate too far from the tried and true Lord Echo formula; a tasty combination of disco, funk, reggae, afro-jazz, with live little bits of electronic music thrown in for good measure, but the sound feels even more weighty and fleshed out.
Make sure you grab your copy of Harmonies when it comes out April 7th on Soundway Records and Wonderful Noise in Japan. I also recommend you check the Soundway link and read Mike Fabulous’s write-up on the album, as it provides some more insight as to the process that went into making the album.
