Echoes Top 25 for December.

It’s the last monthly Top 25 for 2012

Depature SongsHammock heads up the list, following on their #2 appearance in the Best of Echoes 2012 listener poll, followed by the #1 CD on that list, Dead Can Dance’s Anastasis.   It was a very electronic month.  In fact, you have to go down to #23 and Jeff Pearce’s In the Season of Fading Light to find a record you could call acoustic. I’m working on the 25 Essential Echoes CDs for 2012 right now which comes later today so I don’t want to muddy the waters too much.  But here’s your second to last breath of 2012.
