In the Echoes Podcast, All India Radio talks about his latest missive from Australia, Eternal, opens with a robot voice giving the exhortation, “Let’s Dance.” But this ain’t no party. It’s a space music opus influenced by Pink Floyd and early electronic music. All India Radio's Martin Kennedy use's samples from a bad 1962 Sci-Fi Film, The Creation of Humanoids, to tie together a retro-futuristic album.
Martin Kennedy: My mission is to bring space rock to the chill out crowd with a little bit of old school hip hop thrown in, too. I don’t know, I honestly don’t know what I would call my music. But I do like space rock.
Eternal was the Echoes CD of the Month for December 2019 and his previous album, Space earned the same honor in 2018. Hear Martin Kennedy talk about his space rock opuses on Echoes.
