This Friday June 19th, Bandcamp will be donating 100% of their share of sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund to mark Juneteenth. Erased Tapes and its artists, as a collective, will be joining them by donating 100% of profits from sales on that day to the Discrimination Law Association in the UK.
Erased Tapes and La Blogothèque present one of the last Take Away Shows to be filmed before lockdown, with a mesmerising performance from Japanese vocal artist Hatis Noit shot by the fabled Vincent Moon on location at the Mausoleum of Graz.
Shards enlist fellow musicians including Douglas Dare, Anna Meredith, Nico Muhly, Joe Newman of Alt-J, Jonathan Donahue of Mercury Rev, plus many more to collaborate remotely as the Isolation Choir on a new composition by leader Kieran Brunt titled Inside I’ll Sing.
Happy Piano Day — to mark this year’s 88th day and as an acknowledgement to these unprecedented circumstances we find ourselves in, Piano Day founder, pianist and producer Nils Frahm releases a surprise album of eight solo piano pieces, titled Empty — out today.
