Repressed!! Recorded in Chicago in 2001 with producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine), Echolocation is the first in a long string of amazing and varied records by The Fruit Bats. This is the starting point, the songs that had been kicking around looking for a suitable home, and they found it here. With backing from many of the members of Califone, band leader Eric Johnson made a lush and understated record that stand the test of the ten years it’s been around. This vinyl release is a perfect marriage of sound and format, with its inherent pops and crackles only enhancing the back-porch-at-sunset vibe that permeates these songs.
