WE LOOK BACK AT ECHOES CD OF THE MONTH PICKS FROM 2013
Every month on Echoes we pick out the CD of the Month. It’s the album we think best represents the sound of Echoes and simply, the best album in that sound. This year has been a great one for CD of the Month selections, so I thought we’d do an entire show looking back at those albums. We’ll be going from our current December pick, David Helpling & Jon Jenkins’ Found, all the way back to our January pick, The Ambient Zone-Just Music Café Volume 4.
They aren’t necessarily the best albums of the year, but they were all the best album of their respective months and I would be surprised if they all weren’t in our year end top 25. It can be hard picking the albums. The selections are either slim or abundant. This year fell on the abundant side as we had our best stretch of Echoes CD of the Month picks in a while. As we head toward the end of the year and best of lists, I thought I’d look back at our twelve picks. Maybe these are albums you voted for in the Best of Echoes 2013 poll going on right now at echoes.org.
