The Echocentrics is a new project from Austin-based two-time Grammy winning producer Adrian Quesada, a member of Grupo Fantasma, and one of the minds behind bands like Ocote Soul Sounds and Brownout. Teaming up with Argentinean singer Natalia Clavier and Brazil-based Tita Lima, he has carved out a cinematic, southern-fried, laid back, and psychedelic album to be released April 26th. This introductory, limited edition, 7” single features “Esclavo Y Amo,” which is a cover of a Peruvian bolero (ballad) performed by Los Pasteles Verdes that Quesada first heard about 8 years ago. The original version was the tune that inspired the forthcoming Echocentrics album.
On Jed and Lucia's “Helium”, the duo locking in on the best aspects of their album, which All Music called “The perfect soundtrack to your lazy autumn days.” By combining breezy vocals that breathe life into a wash of pristine keyboards and evocative piano, Jed and Lucia have created a beautiful synth-pop welcome to spring sunshine. This EP is printed on white vinyl and also sees the band remixing two of their own tracks from their Ubiquity LP and also includes a stunning remix from UK's Letherette.
