Satori

Oslo based pianist and composer Julia Gjertsen's new record Formations is out in the world! The collection of 10 beautiful, texture filled ambient pieces is at once dense but delicate, with Julia expertly oscillating between catchy, beat driven hooks and slow motion soundscapes that cause us to lose track of time. "Formations refers to the process of creating this album and the main theme throughout this record is how everything takes form, what decides our personalities, who we become, how everything in nature forms and evolves."

Dear

The wonderful Stationary Travels is premiering Daigo Hanada's new piece "Dear" today. Head over to discover this tender piano improvisation from his upcoming record.

There is an elegant simplicity to his work, a balance between melody, harmony, and space that is easy to listen to but takes a special touch to achieve and that can be heard in the delicate flow of this poignantly tender piece that will capture your heart in the space of less than two minutes.

After Melancholia

Pêtr Aleksänder

Very excited to announce that we're working with UK duo Pêtr Aleksänder on their upcoming LP! An alternative modern classical band comprising of Tom Hobden and Eliot James, Pêtr Aleksänder creates an expansive, cinematic, richly textured sound filled with strings, electronic undercurrents, and their signature, creaky, muted piano.

Their new material is fresh and uplifting, and we couldn't be happier to share the first piece from these sessions : orcd.co/remainsoftheday

Mursejler

It's finally here - Jacob David's sophomore LP Mursejler. We've been working with Jacob since the very outset of the label, and it's been such a pleasure to share in his music making over the years. This record is a gorgeous affair from start to finish, full of catchy and thoughtful melodies, playing that is at times delicate and others playful, and loaded with honesty and emotion. In short, we think you'll love it. You can spin it on all digital platforms now, or treat yourself to a 180g vinyl pressing complete with artwork by Jon Beacham / The Brother in Elysium.
