One of 2008's most sublime records was Peter Broderick's 'Home', a delicate, multi-faceted crystalline thing of beauty. Originally from Portland, Oregon, Broderick played violin, banjo, musical saw, mandolin, etc with artists such as M. Ward, Zooey Deschanel, and Dolorean, before moving to Denmark to join Efterklang. Whilst there he began working on his own music, releasing a mini album of solo piano music, 'Docile', on Kning Disk, and a full length album of piano and string compositions, 'Float',on Type. 'Home', released on Type and Bella Union, is Broderick's first record of songs. Combining arpeggiated guitar, hushed multi-tracked vocals, distant strings and found sounds the album is a totally enveloping soundtrack to patient yearning, full of subtly celestial moments. Its broad palette takes in elements of Steve Reich, Iron & Wine, Xela, Mark Kozelek and John Taverner to create a sound of refined astral folk clarity.
C JOYNES & THE RESTLESS DEAD
eavy thumb-led finger-picking techniques that hark back to traditional country-blues and early ragtime, venturing off to explore alternative melodic traditions. Joynes will be teaming up with some fellow outer thinkers for the Restless Dead's second outing.
A welcome return to our favourite London/Cambridge pop-folk chanteuse. Last seen playing with Espers at CB2 in 2005, she has since been garnering unanimous praise for her 7" releases on neednowater, and leaving audiences across the capital in a state of stunned awe.
