On the next Echoes we look to the skies with Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner and Nico Muhly when we hear music from their album, Planetarium. We’ll also hear music from singer-songwriter Lexie Roth, daughter of guitarist Arlen Roth.
Patrick Watson is a Canadian band that has been making a dreamy art pop since the early 21st century. On their latest album, Love Songs for Robots, they use sci-fi metaphor and ethereal arrangements for a deeper, more introspective sound.
Coming up on Echoes music from the Arab underground when we hear Yasmine Hamdan and her new album Al Jamilat (The Beautiful Ones). We’ll also hear new music from Clannad’s Moya Brennan and her album, Canvas.
On the next Echoes it’s Nordic Dreams. From Sigur Ros to Agnes Obel, Erik Wøllo to Ane Brun we’ll hear the sound coming out of Scandinavian musicians that seems to emerge from the other side of consciousness.
