Rachel Zefirra – The Deserters

The Echoes Top 25 is led by singer-songwriter Rachel Zeffira whose album, The Deserters was the Echoes CD of the Month.  This chamber pop singer is joined by several other vocal ensembles in the Top 25 including Karl Hyde, Olivier Libaux, Seven Saturdays and Still Corners.  In fact, eleven of the Top 25 are vocal groups marking a bit of a sea change in where Echoes music is going.  But there’s still plenty of ambient and space music out there including the number two album, Exploration and Ascent by Northcape and Jah Wobble & Marconi Union’s deep space dub album, Anomic.  Here’s the complete list of The Echoes Top 25 for June.
