Composer Michael Price may have attracted attention recently for being responsible alongside David Arnold for the soundtrack to the popular BBC series Sherlock, winning an Emmy in the process, but this was only the latest (if the most successful) of several high profile film/television scores he’s been involved in over the last decade. It’s this depth of experience and musical skillset that he puts to striking effect on his Erased Tapes released debut album Entanglement. Entanglement took over two years to make and it clearly shows – there’s a level of care and attention to detail evident, with each track seeming to serve its own particular purpose as well as contributing to a greater whole.
London-based Erased Tapes Records continues to delight. It’s no wonder that some of my all time favorite modern classical composers, such as Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Peter Broderick, A Winged Victory for the Sullen, Lubomyr Melnyk, and many others, selected Erased Tapes as their home. It seems that the imprint’s curator, Robert Raths has a knack for picking out the talent, let alone the very next best thing in contemporary music.
Head here to submit your own review of this album. Since 2007, Erased Tapes Records have unwaveringly built themselves a reputation as a home to artists of musical bravery. Artists who cross the classical, ambient and electronic realms have found their place at the London-based label, including Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds, A Winged Victory For The Sullen and several others.
