A favorite album of the year

Here is one of my favorite albums of the year. It’s actually from 2016, but I just discovered this artist. Initially I read a write-up about Peter Broderick’s work somewhere, and selected this based on the album art alone. It really just stands out in the record racks. The music inside is stunning! Record label Erased Tapes has a free sampler here where you can get a taste. It is a fairly short album, but with your eyes closed in a quiet moment, the music herein will truly stay with you. The repetitive, equally haunting and charming piano playing compels repeat plays: I once listened for 2 hours straight…amazing art. Erased Tapes represents other brilliant musicians/composers such as Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds.
