The Strange - Echo Chamber - Out Now!

posted at 02/21/2019

A match made in heaven; made possible by the proximity between Zagreb and Ljubljana. We're more than happy to release the new The Strange album entitled Echo Chamber today on Glitterhouse Records!

Echo Chamber is the long-awaited follow-up of The Strange’s first album Nights of Forgotten Films (2004). A collaboration by Croatian surf-rockers The Bambi Molesters and US singer-songwriter Chris Eckman of The Walkabouts. This time Italian producer Don Antonio of Sacri Cuori, known for his work with Alejandro Escovedo and Dan Stuart (Green on Red) joins Phill Brown (The Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Roxy Music, Talk Talk ) at the mixing console.

The new album is even more diverse and deeper than Nights of Forgotten Films. For example, the song Killing Time sounds like a lost country-soul song rom the late 60's, Dime A Dozen like funk-rock from the early 70's and Broken Down Blues like a blues in the style of the final songs by Leonard Cohen. Beautiful twang guitars, an elegant horn section, tasty keyboards and delighted strings are suggesting that "Echo Chamber" could be today's echo of yesterday's baroque-pop legends such as Lee Hazlewood, Scott Walker, Van Dyke Parks or Burt Bacharach.
Happy release day The Strange!
