Miranda Lee Richards premiered “First Light of Winter,” the second single to be released from the album, ‘Echoes of Dreamtime’ on KCRW. The Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Miranda Lee Richards will release the new album ‘Echoes Of The Dreamtime’ on Invisible Hands Music on January 29th. The collection of eight psychedelic folk songs was recorded in her home with production from Rick Parker who has worked with the likes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Lord Huron.
‘Echoes Of The Dreamtime’ brings together eight atmospheric epics into a work that is her most impressive yet. The album, which recalls artists such as Natalie Prass, Jessica Pratt, and Agnes Obel incorporates a more lyrically narrative style, with many of the songs coming in at over five minutes. The eight-minute track “It Was Given” is based on the movie The White Ribbon by Michael Haneke.
Echoes of Dreamtime Track List:
1) 7th Ray
2) Tokyo Dancing
3) Little Radio
4) First Light of Winter
6) Colours So Fine
7) It Was Given

About Miranda Lee Richards:
Richards was born in San Francisco after the summer of love and before the dawn of disco. Her parents are well-known underground comic book artists Ted and Terre Richards, R. Crumb being their most infamous contemporary. After graduating from the San Francisco School Of The Arts, she travelled to Paris to model, but soon returned to the U.S. to pursue a musical career. A series of chance encounters led her to befriend Kirk Hammet from Metallica, who taught her to play guitar. Early demos of her songs reached the ears of Anton Newcombe, and she soon joined his band The Brian Jonestown Massacre. She sang on their early recordings, including the first track on the debut album, and appeared with them in the seminal documentary DIG!.
