Echoes Top 25 for February 2015

Fernwood ArcadiaFernwood‘s Arcadia is a lot like the pastoral influences that inform it’s name and music, it grows on you slowly.  It was the Echoes CD of the Month for February and now, 6 weeks after I selected it, I like it even more. It’s the number one album for February.  Read the review and hear some tracks from this beautifully understated album.  It’s followed by another album that has a certain earthiness to it, even if it is spun thru space: Lanterna‘s Backyards, our March CD of the Month.
