Echo Orbiter is the long standing psychedelic rock project of Philadelphia brothers Justin and Colin Emerle, along with longtime collaborator Jeremiah Steffen. Over the past decade and a half, the band has amassed a prolific catalog of recordings, ranging from hissy home-taped lo-fi madness to a more polished and poppy product.
Next month, they’ll add to the collection with the release of the new Aerosol Power EP, a collection of music recorded in collaboration with new guitarist Robert Hart. The set is made up of twelve new songs – which might seem long for an EP, until you realize each track clocks in between a minute and a half and two minutes. Think of them as a Minor Threat for the Philly psych scene. Below, you can listen to one of those songs, “Stars From A to Z”; it bounced and cavorts like it came from the same fuzzy buzzy fun park as The Apples in stereo.
Hear the entire EP over at Echo Orbiter’s Bandcamp, catch the release show at Kungfu Necktie on July 14, and keep your eyes peeled for even more new music from the Emerle brothers (and co.) in the fall.
