At the half-way point of the year, we pick the albums that excited us the most thus far in 2016. Miranda Lee Richard’s “Echoes of the Dreamtime” tops the list of 25, followed by All India Radio, Hammock, Radiohead and more.
Here the Blue River is an album of poetic beauty, both in the lyrics and the music. Haroula Rose has been recording since 2009, but she has summitted a mountaintop of perfection on her second full-length album.
John Heart Jackie is the duo of Jennie Wayne & Peter M. Murray. They make a trippy psychedelic folk with country harmonies, ambient textures and electronica loops. They come in to play it live on Echoes.
