Echoes Podcast: Suss's Ambient Country Space and Robert Rich, the 9th Icon of Echoes
In the Echoes Podcast we suss it out with SUSS, the tripped-out band that merges country, ambient, and psychedelic music. They discuss whether they are ambient Americana or psychedelic country. It’s an important distinction that we bend our minds over. Their latest album is Promise. We also delve into Numün, a spaced out side project from one member and their debut, Voyage au Soleil. SUSS also played live on Echoes, shortly after the release of their album Highlines.
Then, it’s the 9th Icon of Echoes: Robert Rich. Robert Rich is an electronic pioneer of dreamy, sometimes dark, and always evolving electronic dreamscapes. It’s hard to imagine Echoes over the last 3 decades without Robert Rich. He was on the first Echoes Living Room Concert CD, A Door In the Air and has played live on the show many times. We’ll survey his career from sleep concerts to glurp and beyond in the Echoes Podcast.
