For fans of eclectic classical and acoustic ambient, I’d recommend this compilation, just released (February 5, 2017), on Erased Tapes. It profiles a few of the amazing artists on their label, including Portland favorite Peter Broderick and Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds. I’m looking forward to delving into their back catalog after hearing this beautiful collection.
Enjoy and support the artists. Name your price, on Bandcamp!
“Commencing the 10th anniversary celebrations with a free compilation entitled Erased Tapes Collection VIII, Erased Tapes also welcomes the iconic Penguin Cafe to the roster amongst tracks from new signing Daniel Brandt (of Brandt Brauer Frick) and Peter Broderick’s duo project Allred & Broderick. It also includes recent compositions by Rival Consoles, A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Ben Lukas Boysen, Douglas Dare and Immix Ensemble & Vessel, as well as a previously unreleased Ryan Davis remix of Erased Tapes stalwarts Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm which was recently favoured by Aphex Twin and an exclusive edit of Woodkid & Nils Frahm’s score for JR’s Ellis, with spoken words by Robert De Niro.”
