World Of Echo on a single disc? And not at first pressing prices? That's a CD for ya!
In my opinion, there’s no better way to sell a record than whacking an “UNINTELLIGIBLE” sticker on the shrink wrap. But “unintelligible” doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a difficult listen!
A masterpiece of warped pop hooks, left-of-field cello playing, and dub-esque electronics and mixing, World Of Echo was Arthur Russell’s only solo album to be released in his lifetime. A record of enduring importance and significance that feels like an entrance into contemporary dub-inflected favourites like YL Hooi, Mosquitoes, and Exek.
