A surprise release for his friend

Nils Frahm, whose new album Felt comes highly recommended here, is today releasing a new limited edition 7" and download of a track in tribute to his friend and sometime collaborator Peter Broderick. The track 'Juno' is also a nod to that particular synthesiser. Says Frahm of the song, "This session was recorded in just one night sometime in the beginning of 2010. Peter Broderick loved the sound of this synthesiser so much, he asked me to record some solo sketches with it. This is what I came up with. I didn't use any overdubs or punch-ins. See it as a synthesiser solo performance." The a-side is titled 'For' the b-side 'Peter' (see what he did there?) and you can purchase the track from the ever-excellent Erased Tapes label here. Listen to 'For' below:
