Vells :: Flight From Echo Falls Review
Flight From Echo Falls is one of the more pleasant CDs recently released. The band is composed of indie rock veterans including members from Modest Mouse and Plastiq Phantom. The CD seizes you right away with the opening lines of "In the Hour of Flowers," but in a nice let-us-play-music-for-you sort of way. The sound is vintage and energetic and Tristan Marcum's androgynous vocals are ear candy. The whole CD gives a sunny afternoon vibe that is perfect come this winter when the rain has got you down. Check it out if you like The Shins, Rogue Wave, or The Beatles. Standout tracks include "Hello Medecina," "All in All" and the title track "Flight from Echo Falls."
