Catching up with Peter Broderick (from End Hits blog)

Check out this rather awesomely assembled mini-doc of Danish band Efterklang on tour, with them performing “The Soft Beating”—a highlight from their splendid new Magic Chairs album—in a variety of different places, with incredibly consistent results until the whole thing devolves into a pillow fight.  Portland musicians (and siblings) Peter Broderick and Heather Woods Broderick have joined the Danish band Efterklang as auxiliary members, but due to unfortunate circumstances Peter had to drop out of the tour. (That’s Peter “softly beating” on his chest in the video.) You can read all about that in our article on Efterklang

I asked Peter about the circumstances around his having to drop out of the tour, and he went above and beyond by writing me an incredibly detailed account of his injury and the subsequent events. I’m posting the entirety of Peter’s story; be sure to check it out. Peter is returning home later this month, ironically only a few short days after Efterklang plays their show here. It’s too bad Peter had to drop out of the tour, but it will be great to have him back home in Portland as he takes time to fully recuperate.
