After completing work on the elaborate forthcoming follow-up to his vocal debut, Home, musician/composer Peter Broderick went into the studio with the goal of recording and mixing an album in one day, live to 2″ tape, with no overdubs or punch-ins. Only voice, piano, and guitar. How They Are is this record.
Known as a ?stop-gap? release in waning industry terms, the album sheds the tossed-off connotation, revealing something altogether sublime in its austerity and candor. This is not lite Broderick. This is essential Broderick.
An adopted member of the Danish ensemble, Efterklang, Broderick has recorded and/or toured with several groups/musicians (Horse Feathers, M. Ward, She & Him, Norfolk & Western, Laura Gibson, and many more). Meanwhile Broderick cultivated a string of releases cementing himself as a composer / musician to watch in what some are calling the young neoclassical movement. In late 2008 Broderick released HOME to rapturous acclaim from The London Times, NPR, MOJO, and The NME.
