Le Voyage Dans La Lune Lands in the Echoes Top 25
It was a trippy month in March in more ways than one, but none more so than Air’s Le Voyage Dans La Lune, their retro-psychedelic electronica soundtrack for the 1902 French silent film that was also the focal point of the movie Hugo. It was the Echoes CD of the Month for March and it landed them at #1 for Echoes Top 25 for March
Electronics made a big return last month with the Greenosophy collection from Ultimae Records, Ian Boddy and Erik Wollo collaboration on Frontiers (DiN), Signal’s recording of Philip Glass’ Glassworks: Live at Le Poisson Rouge and Thierry David’s celestial Stellar Connection (Real Music). And you could make the argument that Coyote Oldman’s Time Travelers is just as electronic, sending Native flutes into deep space reverb and processing.
But acoustic music still held its own with the number 2 and three slots taken by International Guitar Night VI, even though Adrian Legg slipped in an electric guitar, and One Alternative’s Air Sculpture making a surprising leap to #2.
Look for Thierry David’s Stellar Connection to top the list in April as our CD of the Month.
