'Echo Other' is All India Radio's fourth studio album and the first since their warmly received and ARIA nominated 2003 self titled album. 'Echo Other' was produced by sound designer Byron Scullin whose previous credits include David Bridie (Not Drowning Waving), David Sylvian, High Pass Filter, Snog, Biftek, Music Vs Physics and the Wolf Creek soundtrack. This is the first time All India Radio have used an outside producer and Byron has created a spectacular sonic soundscape, blending the best elements of the band’s ambient sounds, textures and samples with the energy of traditional drums, bass, guitar overlayed with a smattering of ghostly voices.
Drawing similarities to Boards of Canada, All India Radio deliver a powerful edge as spectacular ambience takes over leaving only the Australian masterminds who collaborated on this album and your mind to perceive what it may. Echo Other is undeniably one of the most elegantly laid out and ethereal albums of the year. - adapt magazine
Lonesome sagebrush guitar meets swirling deep-space technology during the high points of this Australian trio's fourth album, suggesting a futuristic spaghetti western. - Spin
Soothing, Sensual and Sexy? We're totally there! We hestitate to call All India Radio ambient, for there's more to their swooping sound than typical numbing rhythms and dreamy drops. There's a distinct cinematic quality to their melange of electronica and live-band reverberations. It's no surprise to hear, then, that they count the legendary composer Ennio Maricone and Brit-rebel band KLF among their influences. - queerty.com
They’re one Sophia Coppola film soundtrack away from being the next big thing on the softer side of electronica. The music is beautiful and organic with enough depth to keep coming back for multiple listening sessions...it’s a delicate and intriguing piece of work - Wonka Vision magazine
There is a song on Echo Other, the new album from Australia’s All India Radio, that sounds like the first day of the end of an ice age. It’s brief, with an overwhelming sense of warmth, like the soundtrack of rebirth. They call it Sunshine Briefly. It’s a fitting title. In fact, most of the songs on Echo Other sound exactly like their labels would suggest and vice versa. The names alone, like Tropic of Unicorn, The Quiet Ambient, Ghost Dirt, and Endless Highway should tip you off right away on what to expect here. In fact, the only thing that may catch you by surprise is how competent A.I.R. is at doing what they do. It’s a prime example that you don’t always have to break the ground that you stand so firmly on top of. - thespacelab.tv
