We turn on, tune in and trip out on the sound of the psychedelic sixties. We break out the lava lamp and trip through a pastoral brand of psychedelic music including the sounds of Pink Floyd, Spirit, and The Jefferson Airplane. We'll also hear some of their psychedelic heirs including Sigur Ros and The Future Sound of London It's part of a hallucinatory flashback on a Psychedelic Echoes.

Echoes CD of the Month for February:
Amethystium APHELION
Fantasy music seems to be in the air these days and Amethystium tunes into that spirit on his new CD, APHELION. Amethystium is Norwegian keyboardist Oystein Ramfjord, who swirls electronica designs ala Delirium with old analog sounds and contemporary loops, forging a lush, imaginary orchestra that is the soundtrack you wish you'd heard in Lord of the Rings. We feature as Echoes February CD of the Month.

Wednesday 02/05/03
Peppino D'Agostino and David Tanenbaum are acoustic guitar wizards who work their magic from opposite ends of the wand. Tanenbaum is a classical virtuoso, playing nylon string guitar and specializing in contemporary compositions. D'Agostino is a self-taught musician from the Will Ackerman/Michael Hedges generation of folk-based finger-style players. They got together recently on a CD called CLASSIC/STEEL (Minestrone Music) that tries to bring their worlds together. We hear these two Bay Area musicians trading contrapuntal melodies and deft interchanges in this live performance.

In his home in the west of England, we visit Toby Marks, better known by his recording persona, Banco de Gaia. Toby Marks has always eschewed the term "ethno-techno", a genre that he helped spawn despite his ambivalence. Banco de Gaia launched a fusion of global music elements welded to kinetic rhythms and electro-sync grooves that even eight years later, holds up to extended listening. His 1995 album, LAST TRAIN TO LHASA (Six Degrees) is a signpost of ambient and techno music. A collection of his music BANCO DE GAIA: 10 YEARS (Six Degrees) was recently issued. Toby Marks takes us back to the birth of Banco de Gaia in Birmingham's Mega Dog and Whirly-gig raves up to the present.

Friday 02/06/03
Michael Hewett spends his days teaching yoga in Manhattan. He's combined his yogic philosophy with music, playing finger style acoustic guitar through digital delays and effects and wrapping them in modern chamber arrangements with cello, bass and percussion. Michael Hewett talks about putting some edge into yoga music on his CD, BEING IN DREAMING (Dharma Moon).
