[News] Echo Response to release “Triangles” on March 18, 2022 and unveil the first single

Pax Aeternum presents “Triangles,” the debut album from Portland, Maine-based Echo Response, the solo endeavor of multi-instrumentalist Jason Ingalls.

The brainchild of Ingalls (El Malo, formerly of The Baltic Sea, Seekonk, and more), Echo Response’s debut album “Triangles” stands as an act of sonic world-building – and immersive, vibrant landscape in which a listener can lose themselves. Unafraid to contort the influence of his predecessors into something new and different, Ingalls doesn’t perform songs so much as he embarks on journeys.

From the Studio One vibes of opener “The Approach,” to the pensive Morricone ambience of “One Door Opens,” to the worldly Eno/Byrne funk of “Rayquaza,” Ingalls manages to pull the listener in a different direction with each song without losing the sense of the larger path being headed down. But focusing on these individual points of reference would be like staring at brushstrokes rather than taking in the whole of a painting. Like fellow iconoclasts such as Can, Tortoise, and Khruangbin, Echo Response fuses the rhythmic pulse of dub, the ethereal sheen of cosmic jazz, and the anything goes aesthetic of Krautrock into something that can balance being expansive yet inviting, eclectic yet focused, reverent yet iconoclastic.

Entirely written and performed by Jason Ingalls, except for saxophone performed by Rexy Dinosaur, “Triangles” was recorded at Ingalls’ home and at Acadia Recording Company, mixed by Todd Hutchisen, mastered by Pat Keane, and completed with cover art by Chris Allen Collage and photography by Justine Johnson.
