Philip Selway - Weatherhouse

Philip Selway is best known as the drummer for Radiohead, but he’s also a singer-songwriter whose last solo albums , Weatherhouse, flowed on lush textures, seductive melodies and probing lyrics. He draws on gentle psychedelic sounds that have echoes of The Zombies and the Moody Blues, tempered with the artful rhythmic turns and electronic textures that mark Radiohead’s’ music.

Featured CD

Jesse Cook’s One World Echoes August CD of the Month.

OneWorldSIZED

Nouveau Flamenco guitarist Jesse Cook came to renown with his debut album, Tempest, in 1995. At the time he road in on the coattails of Nouveau Flamenco pioneer Ottmar Liebert and bands like The Gipsy Kings, but Cook always had his own sound, one that that morphed and fused over the course of two decades and several albums. He’s taken his flamenco influenced guitar playing into new settings with every album. On One World he goes global and electronica in a studio infused album of journeys from the serene to the ecstatic. One world is the Echoes CD of the Month for August.
