Ambient Chamber Music Master pieces Echoes Top 25 for April
Ólafur Arnald‘s For Now I Am Winter, the Echoes CD of the Month for April, and Rhian Sheehan‘s Stories from Elsewhere top our list for April and that’s little surprise since both are masterpieces of Ambient Chamber Music. One musician comes from Iceland, the other from Norway, exemplifying just how broad the Ambient Chamber Music zeitgeist is. There’s little doubt these albums will be near the top of our year end lists. It’s been a fantastic month for music with newer artists to Echoes like Sleeping Forest, Apricot Rail, Rajendra Teredesa and Spiro.
