From Oblivion to Euphoria in Echoes Top 25

Two Takes on Modern Guitar Lead Echoes Top 25 for January.

Oblivion-cvrYou couldn’t get much different than the two guitar sounds at one & two in the Echoes Top 25.  You’ve got the ambient guitar orchestrations of Hammock’s Oblivion Hymns, the Echoes CD of the Month for January followed at number 2 by E4 (Instrumental)  the Americana Electronica album from Euphoria.  Those musicians are both longtime inhabitants of this list, but some newcomers include the dream pop band, Elika,  English singer-songwriter, Fink, Seattle psychedelic folkie Damien Jurado, Swedish singer and cellist Linnea Olsson and Brazilian singer and cellist Dom La Nena.
