London Grammar Digs Californian Soil and Michael Hedges-The 18th Icon of Echoes
London Grammar are 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. Californian Soil will be the Echoes May CD of the Month. They talk about it in the Echoes Podcast.
