Echoes September Top 25

Darshan Ambient Leads Echoes Top 25 for September

Little_Things_CoverLittle Things does big things on Echoes Top 25 as Darshan Ambient’s CD of the Month rises to the head of the pack in September.   Azam Ali & Loga R. Torkian aren’t far behind with the Lamentation of Swans, an album that is still revealing itself after several months.  Mree’s Winterwell pops back up.  She is definitely the new artist of 2013. And yes, she had a previous CD in 2011 but no one heard it and Winterwell is clearly a breakthrough work of beautiful songs and harmonies that are like sinking into satin sheets.  lamentationThere’s  lot of newcomers to this list like Eklipse, Emiliana Torrini, Endless Tapes, Gungor, and the The Joy Formidable.  And there are 15 vocals on the list, even if some of those vocals are imaginary languages from Azam Ali and Akara, and wordless voices from Julianna Barwick.  Check out the top 25 below.
