On the next Echoes, The Cranberries return “something Else,” an album of acoustic and orchestral renditions of their best known songs from the 90s. And new music by Adam Werner.
Before it was corporate music for spas and yoga studios, New Age music had adventurous, experimental Indie roots. Producer Douglas Mcgowen unearths them in two collections. “I Am The Center, Private Issue New Age Music in America, 1950-1990” and “The Microcosm, Visionary Music of Continental Europe, 1970-1986.”
Echoes American Landscapes, a soundscape for July 4th with a live performance by acclaimed oboist Jill Haley. She plays in the band One Alternative, and is one of Windham Hill founder Will Ackerman’s stable of first call musicians. Her latest album is National Park Soundscapes, which is just perfect for July 4th.
