London Grammar & Desensitized: The Echoes Interviews
Weekend listeners hear London Grammar, the seductive and serene band who are releasing their third perfect dream pop album in a row. They artfully mix songs of love and loss with themes of political betrayal and social injustice, anchored by the shadowed voice of Hannah Reid. And on their new album, Californian Soil, Reid even finds love. It will be the Echoes CD of the Month in May. Hear them talk about it on Echoes.
Some weekend listeners will also get Desensitized. That’s the name chosen for the collaboration between melodic electronic artist Deborah Martin and experimental electronic artist Dean De Benedictus, who also records as Surface 10. They made up their own language for titles, like the name of the album, Hemispherica Portalis (Portal of 1000 Years) and created their own ecosystem of ambient space sounds. We’ll will sensitize you to Desensitized.
