The Echoing Green - The Winter Of Our Discontent (CD)
- New Factory Sealed
- 2005 BEC Recordings
The Echoing Green has established themselves as one of the top American synthpop bands of the last decade, with a long string of albums and extensive touring that has won a large fanbase. "The Winter of Our Discontent" is considered by the band to be a landmark album, blending together all the different styles and structures of synthpop that the band has played through the years. Producer and head-man Joey Belville puts together one of the most emotional and diverse albums you'll hear from The Echoing Green. From clubby futurepop to emotional ballads to catchy pop tunes to melancholy darkwave, it's all here!
The Echoing Green is a solo project, though for live shows the frontman also employs drummer Jason Partch, a keyboard player (either Patrick McCallum or Jerome from MORTAL), guitar player Brandon Dickerson, and either David Gatt or Chris O'Brien as a DJ. Defend Your Joy was released in 1994, and a remix project called Aurora 7.2 appeared the following year. Both are on MYX Records.
