Download IO Echo’s I’ve Been Vaping Your Tears Mixtape

Yesterday, L.A.’s synthetic shoegazers IO Echo released a cover of Mariah Carey’s “Heartbreaker,” off of their new mixtape I’ve Been Vaping Your Tears, which is available for download today.

Stream IO Echo Ministry Of Love

Last year, the Los Angeles shoegaze band IO Echo released their self-titled debut EP, and two weeks ago, they went extra-hard at SXSW. I somehow managed to accidentally catch their swooshing, mystery-drenched live show twice, by accident both times. Next week, they’ll release their proper debut album Ministry Of Love. And right now, you ca… More »

IO Echo – “When The Lillies Die”

Leopold Ross and Ioanna Gika form L.A. duo IO Echo, an outfit that offer goth-shaded, shoegaze-y tracks good enough to be favorably compared to folks like Siouxsie And The Banshees and Echo & The Bunnymen. While I can certainly hear that influence and understand those touchpoints, Gika’s pretty, unobscured vocals drive the music in a… More »
