'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

If you ever find yourself longing for the era where trip-hop bands were dishing out beat-driven noir, then you may want to check out this Australian trio.....slow, cinematic, trip-hop....ambient textures derived from sources like Neu! and Eno, which gives their music a wide open feeling. - Losing Today

music which will entice listeners into a dreamier world if they let themselves be encapsulated by flawless rhythms - mediasearch.com.au

Melbourne’s All India Radio have produced an album that is guaranteed to send even the most cynical listener (i.e., me on a bad day) drifting off into blissful reverie… their definitive album...a sophisticated instrumental soundtrack to walking on the moon while sipping cocktails. - Luna Kafe (Norway)

otherwordly guitar and absolutely breathtaking beats … in this collection of cinematic, striking pieces. It’s the kind of music that could make you see beauty in tragedy, like light refracting through breaking glass or the sun appearing behind a collapsing forest. – Rave Magazine

5 STARS It's been three years since their last, self-titled, release, but Martin Kennedy and co have another sublimely relaxing album of windswept landscapey music. You can see the clouds from up here. - The Monkey Puzzle

FOUR STARS Morricone-style stark, lanky guitar lines set upon aural textures reminiscent at times of electro-minimalists the Boards of Canada...this is tasty music that sets your imagination loose - it's musically provocative yet effortless in its blending of sounds and melodies. - ABC RADIO online

Everything sounds so perfect, so luscious, so warm....a palpable feeling of timeless beauty - Inpress Magazine

Melbourne instrumental outfit All India Radio allow a sense of stillness in accelerated times. A celestial cinescape. - The Sunday Age

"A.I.R. takes you on a dreamlike journey--not unlike what one could imagine the results would be if Kruder & Dorfmeister, Alan Parsons and Calexico were to hang in a studio for a week. Top notch" - Groove Palace Radio.

Stewart Mason, All Music Guide

dreamiest kind of dream pop
Australian ambient pop outfit All India Radio make a bid for wider recognition in the Northern Hemisphere with their third album, signing with the estimable Chicago-based indie Minty Fresh. That's the only noticeable change on Echo Other, however: otherwise, this is a whole lot more of the same, and that's a good thing. Sounding like a mellower version of Boards of Canada, All India Radio (basically, multi-instrumentalist Martin Kennedy plus occasional guests) specialize in the dreamiest kind of dream pop, all floating sustained keyboard chords and downtempo beats, accented with folky acoustic and twangy, Ennio Morricone-style electric guitars and, rarely, female vocals mixed well into the background. (Indeed, the vocals on this album are a good example of Phil Spector's famous dictum that some instruments should be felt but not heard.) The 12 resulting tracks are that rarity: chillout music that actually rewards closer inspection.
