Portland record store and label Beacon Sound will be releasing a collaborative album by Peter Broderick (Efterklang) and Gabriel Saloman (Yellow Swans) in early 2014. This is the first time these two artists have worked together, despite sharing deep Portland roots as well as labels like Type and Mort Aux Vaches. They’ll be recording at Type Foundry Studio (Decemberists, Grails, Glass Candy) with audio engineer Jason Powers. There is a Kickstarter campaign happening right now to fund the vinyl edition of the album; it’s running for another week and is currently over 60% funded.

Artist Bios:

Peter Broderick is a multi-instrumentalist who grew up in Carlton, Oregon and played with Portland groups such as Horse Feathers and Loch Lomond. In 2007 he was invited to work with Danish group Efterklang (currently signed to 4AD) and moved to Berlin. Over the course of the last six years he has released several acclaimed solo albums on labels such as Type and Erased Tapes, collaborated with the likes of Machinefabriek and Nils Frahm, and traveled the world with Efterklang, who debuted their most recent album Piramida with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the iconic Sydney Opera House in May 2012.

Vancouver-based Gabriel Saloman was one half (with Pete Swanson) of influential noise duo Yellow Swans. Their prolific run of albums, EP’s, collaborations, and world tours culminated with the incredible Going Places on Type Records. He is also an accomplished artist and has been exhibited at the Walker Center, California College Of The Arts, and the Manifesta biennial in Murcia, Spain. His excellent debut solo album ‘Adhere’ (on Berlin label Miasmah) has garnered rave reviews.
