After yesterday’s blast from the past for our 24th anniversary we fast forward into the Echoes of 2013 even if some of it includes a song from 50 years ago. Back in 1963 Barbara Lewis had a hit with the song “Hello Stranger” with backing from The Dells. That title may not ring a bell but you’ll remember the chorus: “Ooh, seems like a mighty long time, shoo-bop, shoo-bop, my baby, ooh.” That’s one of the few clues to the song when Julia Holter completely reinvents it on her album, Loud City Song.
I’ve also got some dimensions in Trip-hop with two of the best known acts from that movement, Portishead and Morcheeba. Both groups are fronted by great singers, Beth Gibbons and Skye Edwards respectively.
It’s all ahead in the second show of our 25th year today, on Echoes.
