Adriana Ciccone

I started playing keyboards in my teens, cutting my teeth on Italian folk songs, The Beatles and Elvis. I then discovered the world of experimental/instrumental music and haven’t looked back. In January of 2017, I started writing for Echoes and Dust.

Zeyn Mroueh – Pictures of The Floating World

Music and socio-political issues come together to create an introspective soundscape. It is music that makes you think, all the while sending you to that place good music often does.

Noi Ya – Self-Immolation EP

At just over 20 minutes in length, Noi Ya’s EP release, Self-Immolation EP, is a great psychedelic, electronic trip.

aswekeepsearching – Zia

Zia, from beginning to end, felt like it was telling a story. I believe that’s what the band was trying to achieve and they did so perfectly.

Black Sails for Red Seas – Wave II EP

With this release, Black Sails for Red Seas have continued with what they started in Wave I but with a more heavy, menacing soundscape, laced with hits of light in between.

Appalaches – Cycles

Cycles is a slightly darker and heavier EP compared to the band’s debut album, Mòn, but not so far removed that you don’t know you are listening to the genius that is Appalaches.

Jade Bergeron from Flying Hórses

Since the release of Flying Horses’ debut album, Tölt, Jade Bergeron hasn’t stopped. A few weeks ago, the video for the title track, ‘Tölt’, was premiered via The FADER, and a second video for the track ‘Attic’ released on March 23rd. Jade has also been busy working on her sophomore album and will be releasing a single very soon. Adriana Ciccone had the opportunity to ask Jade a few questions about the videos, the new single and the new album.

A Thousand Hours – Endless Grey

If Slowdive and The Cure were to collaborate, Endless Grey could possibly be the result of such a collaboration.

Don’t You(,) Mean People? – Another Reason

This is a cool EP and a great addition to anyone’s post-rock/math-rock collection.

We Deserve This – Smile

All of these parts come together to create a welcome wall of sound that will comfort you like a warm blanket on a cold winter’s day.

Sceptre Fretpen – PLUGH

I seriously had to double check my player to make sure I was listening to Sceptre Fretpen and not Boards of Canada.

Everyday Dust – The Green Decay

It’s a carefully crafted soundscape and although it created a feeling of dread and darkness, the creativity and amazing use of synth sounds cut through that layer of emotion.

Oikos – The Great Upheaval

The Great Upheaval is a soundtrack for our calamitous times.

Ana María Romano G. – hasta mañana al día siguiente

The track, ‘incluye postre’, is an intense and thrilling track that masterfully connects each and every sound.

Vince Rogers from Where The Good Way Lies

Vince Rogers is the artist behind Where The Good Way Lies. Last July he released the album Nineteen Fourteen. When I first heard the album, I felt the emotion behind it, the same way Hammock invokes emotion in me when I hear their music. This album is full of emotion and great soundscapes. I recently caught up with Vince to talk about the inspiration behind the album and his music in general.

Echoes Of The Past: Plastics – Origato Plastico

This album is a definite gem.
