Air Rises to Top of Echoes Top 25

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 iTunes collection from Ultimae RecordsIan Boddy and Erik Wollo collaboration on Frontiers iTunes (DiN),  Signal’s recording of Philip Glass’ Glassworks: Live at Le Poisson Rouge iTunes and Thierry David’s celestial Stellar Connection iTunes (Real Music).  And you could make the argument that  Coyote Oldman’s Time Travelers iTunes 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 iTunesto top the list in April as our CD of the Month.
