Brought up in a musical household in Oregon, Peter Broderick quickly became a popular session musician for the likes of M. Ward in the Portland area. Later discovered by the Danish band Efterklang he joined their live band and spent the next six years based in Europe where he collaborated with many like-minded contemporaries. Through relentless touring, multiple album recordings and film scores Peter has established himself as a solo artist, known for his innate gift as a musical medium to picking up any instrument, turning his musings into poignant songs.
October 28 will see the reissue of the 26-year old American composer’s 2008 debut album Float. Returning to his home in Oregon, where his musical journey began, Peter completes the circle with the release of Float 2013. The album was remastered by the gifted hands of Nils Frahm, with the new album title laid out by Peter using pebbles at his childhood spot on the beach.
Float 2013 will be reissued on CD, vinyl, digital and even on a limited edition cassette. The album release will also be accompanied by Float 2013 Addendum, a 7” single featuring ‘Something Has Changed’ re-arranged as a duet for violin and viola, with the new title ‘Something Has Remained’. Both can be pre-ordered via Erased Tapes here.
‘In so many ways I’ve found myself coming around the circle, back to the place I started, only perhaps the circle itself has moved. But the dream is the same. And my little baby has a new pair of shoes: Float 2013’ – Peter Broderick
