Frank Harris / Maria Marquez - Echoes LP
Label: Strangelove Music
Echoes is the ethno-wave love child of collaborators Frank Harris and Maria Marquez. A collection of sublime songs dating back to '85, avant-pop flourishes are married here to the heart strings of a synthetic Amazon – think Music From Memory's Outro Tempo meets a tropical Sade. With much contemporary interest in South American electronic music, Echoes is a window into two musicians prescient dreamings of tradition, melody, and technology. Reveling in the embrace of Maria's Venezuelan roots amd folklore visions, combined with Frank's custom Synclavier synth station, songs such as "Canto Del Pílon" and "Tonada de Ordeño" resonate with a charged future/primitive electricity; Maria's song-to-a-siren vocals mainline with Frank's lush sonic alchemy. 180 gram vinyl with printed deluxe sleeve; Full size graphic insert; Includes two-sided, full-size insert.
