Kevin Keller's CD of the Month & the Hybrid Interview This Weekend on Echoes.
October glistens with the CD of the Month, Shimmer by Kevin Keller. A leading exponent of ambient chamber music, Keller creates a kinetic ride of vintage synthesizers and pianos on an album of minimalist melodies and rhythmic drive. Join us when we explore Kevin Keller’s Shimmer on Echoes. Read John Diliberto’s review.
Some weekend listeners will also hear the electronica duo Hybrid. They take us into the sometimes dark world of their new album, Black Halo, the Echoes August CD of the Month. We talk to Charlotte and Mike Truman about their album of fallen angels and orange men. Much of the album is born from the last 2 years of pandemic and political turmoil.
Charlotte Truman: Yeah, well, basically, the sort of overriding theme for the whole album is in a turmoil. But the whole wave of the album from start to finish, we’ve written it like a book.So it basically talks about you’re in struggles and getting rid of them.
Black Halo was the Echoes CD of the Month in August and I’m sure it will be in our Top 5 at year’s end.
