The Echo Chamber is an electronic band hailing from Fort Collins. It has been a while since their last release of new music. In 2012 they released an EP entitled “Vikings From The Future,” but their new album Synesthesia does not disappoint. The album blends rock riffs with electronic sounds and glitches perfectly. The first song on the album is entitled “Into the Machine” and you really feel like you are entering a machine with precise measures and marching-sounding tunes. The tracks flow seamlessly with each other and it is very easy to listen to. There are minimal vocals this album, but the music speaks for itself. Track four, entitled “In Battle” is the standout on the album. With track titles like “Morphine Tiger,” and “Anamorphous Colors In Dreams,” how could you go wrong? They are having their CD release party at Hodi’s Halfnote on November 22, so be sure to check that out.

Day by Day brings the level down to a slow, sexy chill while encouraging people to take it easy, keep the peace and understand each other. While Lonely is no stranger to the old don’t-let-the-door-kick-you-in-the-ass type of break-up song, this tune drives your heart right away […]

On the other hand, certain artists have a sound that is already inexplicably captivating from the debut, a sound that is simply unchangeable. Gregory Alan Isakov is one of these artists. Last month’s release of The Weatherman demonstrates […]
