The Echoes Top 25 for August finds Jesse Cook’s CD of the Month at the top, followed by July’s CD pick, Heather Woods Broderick’s Glider. Look at the bottom and you’ll see next month’s #1 album, our September CD of the Month, Hans Christian’s Nanda Devi.

Echoes Top 25 for July 2015

It’s an eclectic Echoes Top 25 for July with Heather Woods Broderick’s gorgeous album, Glider, our CD of the Month, at the top. Jean-Michel Jarre’s E-Project is also there and that album doesn’t even come out until October. I’m very excited to see Silencio in there at #3. This band includes former members of The Mandrake Project out of Pittsburgh. With Silencio, they create music inspired by director David Lynch and composer Angelo Badalamenti of Twin Peaks and other fame. Go down to #10 and you’ll see our Echoes CD of the Month for August, sure to be the future number one album.

It begins with a band we’ve never heard of before and ends with an Icon of Echoes. We’ll hear from artists who put out signature releases, others reaching for ambitious highs and still others reflecting on very long careers.
