Frank Harris & Maria Marquez - Echoes (Essential BIG TIP!!
Echoes' is the Ethno-Wave love child of collaborators Frank Harris & Maria Marquez. A collection of sublime songs dating back to '85, avante-pop flourishes are married here to the heart strings of a synthetic Amazon- think MFM'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 & technology. Revelling in the embrace of Maria's Venezuelan roots & 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. Heavy weight 180gram pressing, mastered for vinyl by George Horn
