Greg Gives Peter Space

Greg Gives Peter Space picture
The long overdue first collaborative work by Peter Broderick and Greg Haines – "are you ready for this?"

“Greg and I became good friends while both living in Berlin, around 2009 to 2013. We spent countless late nights playing records for each other, dreaming the dream of good music. We talked a lot about collaborating and even put in quite a few hours at each other's studios . . . but for some strange reason we never seemed to finish anything. Maybe we were just busy enough with our other projects and didn't feel in any rush. But we certainly had it in mind that we'd like to finish something one day. And we are very proud to say that day is finally here!

Primarily inspired by mine and Greg's recent obsession with dub music, Greg Gives Peter Space is a mini album comprised of six tracks filled with – you guessed it – spacey sounds, created with the help of Greg's ever-growing collection of synthesizers,  tape delays and reel-to-reel machines. In the true spirit of dub music, many of the mixes were made live, both of us hovering over the mixing board, dancing around and following our intuitions, processing the sounds with live effects while the music bounced down to tape., We are extremely excited to release this record in the summer time and to celebrate with a few select shows around Europe. We've enlisted our dear friend Martyn Heyne to help us perform the music live, and we plan on bringing as much of the original gear from the recordings as possible. After years of playing fairly quiet music for an often seated audience, we can't wait to get on stage and bounce around to some groovy rhythms,  heavy bass and spacey synthesizers. Prepare for take-off! “ – Peter Broderick,  April 2014

Greg Gives Peter Space will be released on Vinyl and Download via Erased Tapes on June 16, 2014.

Douglas Dare announces debut album Whelm

Douglas Dare announces debut album Whelm picture
London-based singer-songwriter Douglas Dare releases his debut album Whelm on Erased Tapes. With the piano at the core, Dare vocalises his short prose and poems to a backdrop of drums, electronics and brass…

'I wanted to make a record that would allow the listener to escape, something lush and immersive but when looked at closely, the grit and depth could be found. I didn’t write the record with a concept in mind but when thinking of titles I found this through-line; I realised the restless nature of humans and the erratic emotions I’d written about could be linked to water and more specifically the sea. I grew up in the coastal town of Bridport, Dorset; the sea was this constant thing in my life. And although I felt an affinity with it, I couldn’t swim until I was a teenager. This equal measure of joy and uncertainty I found in both people and water brought me to Whelm; it feels like a fitting title. To be engulfed. To be buried. To be whelmed.'

Whelm will be released on CD, Vinyl and Download incl. lyric book 'Nine Poems' via Erased Tapes on May 12, 2014.

Pre-order it here or digitally via iTunes.


A Winged Victory For The Sullen return with ATOMOS VII

A Winged Victory For The Sullen return with ATOMOS VII picture
As announced by Pitchfork, April 28 will see the return of A Winged Victory For The Sullen with the release of 'ATOMOS VII'. It forms the first installment leading up to the release of the second studio album 'ATOMOS', and score for choreographer Wayne McGregor's long form dance piece. This EP also sees the involvement of Ben Frost, who composed the music for McGregor’s previous work 'Far'.

'Atomos VII' will be released on 12"/DL and can be pre-ordered here.



'While we were re-amping guitars at Greenhouse studios, Ben expressed interest and admiration in the sounds we had created. We were planning for the B-side to be a metamorphosis of part VII, and Ben seemed the obvious choice. With the multi-tracks transformed, it follows a trajectory that we had not felt comfortable with before. But with Ben's involvement and influence, it was a painless entrance to this crooked, distorted world.’ – Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie

‘We never imagined 2013 would be such an explosively creative year. The first record took us two years from start to finish, but in the micro span of time over last summer we were able to change the formula for the way we write, record, and let go. It was incredibly liberating.’ – Dustin O'Halloran
