Residual Echoes, the brain child of Adam Payne, pave a psych-sound unique to themselves. Recorded late 2005, this LP, exclusive to Rocket Recordings, features four long excursions into psychedelia that brings to mind the experimentation of early Pink Floyd, the guitar heroics of 'You're Living All Over Me' era Dinosaur Jr and the sonic groove of the Velvet Underground.
Residual Echoes first self released album featured Adam and the inspirational forces of Ben Chasney (Six Organs of Admittance) and Ethan Miler (Comets on Fire) and the subsequent LP created enough of a stir on the underground to gain them the prestigious album of the month from none other than Julian Cope on his Head Heritage website.
Since then they have had their debut album, now highly sought after in its original vinyl format, re-released by Holy Mountain who also put out their highly acclaimed second album which saw their sound reach new levels of psyche noise.
Residual Echoes have also become a formidable live act playing shows around America with like minded bands including Kinksi, Grey Daturas, OM and friends Comets on Fire plus a slot at the much talked about Arthurfest in LA last Summer. They are about to embark on a full US tour this Summer with label mates Mammatus and Plastic Crimewave in support.

“As the American underground coalesces around vague notions of ‘free rock’ Residual Echoes are one of the precious few units that truly sound free in their own music,” Time Out New York
