Nils Frahm is soon to embark on a 9fingers Tour named after his recent thumb injury, through North America. Despite his fears, Nils decided to embrace his demons and record a ‘Song for 9 fingers’ as personal motivation and a message of optimism to his American fans:

Hosannas Cave Adventure Video

From the dedicated Into The Woods group, this amazing video expands on the daring descent into Ape Cave near Mt. St Helens to perform where no band has performed before.  Hosannas reports they are holed up in the studio working on the next album.

Peter Broderick has taken the wraps off the website that is his sophomore vocal album’s namesake.  On the surface, it offers streaming of the entire album, lyrics, media-rich liner notes and an invitation to share.  Spend some time with it and you’ll discover a beautiful mind at work and a hidden treasure trove.

Carlos Forster Daytrotter Session

2012 02 16 16:47

Carlos Forster and Mike Coykendall stopped in at Day Trotter headquarters in Rock Island, IL late last year to give a luminous, bare-bones performance of four songs from Forster’s debut Family Trees

Spend any duration of time with Carlos Forster, listen to any song on his incredibly poignant album “Family Trees,” and you’re bound to feel yourself relating to him, nodding a lot and offering personal stories that don’t usually come out at parties. The way that he thinks and the way that he writes is – in the best possible sense of the word – an inviting mess.

Peter Broderick Interview

2012 02 16 13:04

Just a few days before the release of Peter Broderick’s ambitious second proper vocal record (and matching website http://itstartshear.com, to be revealed on Feb 20), Peter has taken the time to answer some questions:

In terms of the album’s title and the website to which it refers, the idea of people downloading music and missing out on images, lyrics and more is quite a generous approach. Do you have any specific hopes or aspirations for the website?
When I started this idea of the website title, there were a lot of different incarnations it took of what it could be. It was meant to be a much grander thing with interactive webstuff but at some point during the process, I became really sick of the computer. I felt almost like I’d become a professional emailer instead of a musician. Then I decided to strip it back and take it back to the root of the idea which was just to share the ideas of the songs with people in a way that all the listeners or at least almost all of the listeners will be able to access. I just hope that some people will actually go there because I’ve written a lot of text for different things. I don’t even necessarily hope that people read it all because it’s a lot of information I’m putting up there. I just hope that people take what they want from it and listen to the music in a way that feels right for them. I’m very curious to see what happens…

Meanwhile, the UK press is beginnning to weigh in with glowing reviews:

“The Oregon-born multi-instrumentalist retains that glacial stateliness here over the course of an hour with ambition and vision.” -MOJO

“It’s all unceasingly beautiful.” – Uncut
