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.

Although there are only three songs on this EP, they have definitely established themselves as a force in the folk/bluegrass world. RP Oates and Erinn Lukes are an amazing vocal […]
Two Worlds Digital by Blue Taboo 4 out of 5 stars True Fort Collins natives, Blue Taboo is band devoid of de nition.

Jared Janzen highlights the album with an incredible virtuosity on vocals and guitar (check out the instrumental “Dust”), though Drew Miller (bass), Will Brauch (guitar) and Julian Ferrara (percussion) provide a […]
