For close to a decade, Portland’s Peter Broderick has cut his own unpredictable path through the world of contemporary music. So far, his wanderings have led him from solo works into the realms of film, dance and documentary scores, as well as art installations.
‘Night Melody’ is Rival Consoles' new 34-minute, 6-track mini album to be released on Erased Tapes, August 5th – following 2015's acclaimed full-length 'Howl'. Born out of and shaped by long hours working into the night, it’s nocturnal in sound; mysterious in the way that the early hours so often are.
Following the world premiere and heavy rotation of 'Golden Times 1' on BBC Radio 6 Music as championed by Mary Anne Hobbs, we're excited to announce the signing of Ben Lukas Boysen with his forthcoming LP 'Spells' due for release on June 10.
For Douglas Dare, the piano is a sad instrument. He makes a convincing case; at his fingertips, the keys sing plaintively, exquisitely melancholy.

We wrote to him with some questions, hoping to get a sense of his relationship to the instrument. What was the first piano piece he remembers hearing? Which composers occupy a special place in his heart? Who or what inspired his unique style; those unbroken reams of notes, and the sustained resonances which hover above them?
Immix Ensemble & Vessel's debut collaborative EP 'Transition' is available now on 12" and digitally from our online store! The release focuses loosely on themes of technology, using musical instruments as a snapshot in time from which to expand and explore across four movements.
Peter Broderick, Douglas Dare, and Michael Price will be joining forces on March 28 for an evening of intimate piano performances at London's Courtyard Theatre as we prepare to celebrate Piano Day, an unofficial holiday created by Nils Frahm on the 88th day of the year.
