We’ve been in love with the Grandbrothers take on the classical sound since we heard Ezra Was Right last year. Their album Dilation dropped back in March and has been a brilliant extension and exploration of the way they make music so far… we highly recommend you buy it!
The new Grandbrothers ‘Dilation’ album is just around the corner and will be getting a release on FILM recordings on March 23rd. We’ve been playing this album over and over and over and the Grandbrothers guys have been a staple part of our Sunday Chill set up for ages now. Rotor is one of the best tracks off the album so its great to finally be able to share it with everyone.
Londoners get excited cause the piano tinkering duo will be coming over for a very special one off gig at Ace Hotel on the 15th April. Cause we’re good to all our Sloths we’ve got a pair of tickets up for grabs for you to see this amazing live show that includes their self built piano drum machine!
Just like + share this post on facebook for a chance to win… We’ll pick a winner 13th April.
I first stumbled onto Grandbrothers thanks to their epic piano led journey called Ezra Was Right last year…. since then we’ve kept a close eye on them and even invited them to do a influences guestmix for us which you can listen to again at the bottom of the post. Well we’ve just heard about this new LP on the way and we’re very excited!
You can listen to opening track Wuppertal below and if you’re into it as much as we are you can expect the album called Dilation for March time on FILM.
Have a little reminisce on the excellent Ezra Was Right… right now!
Aaaand now for something a little different from the usual disco & house business at SlothBoogie.
We first stumbled onto this German duo called Grandbrothers when we heard their amazing track ‘Ezra Was Right’ around on the internets…
It completely captivated me and I wanted to hear more from these guys so I asked them if they would put together a mixtape of some of their influences thats helped them to harness that amazing music they are making.
What came back was this lovely piano heavy selection of chilled and slightly experimental tracks that has been a wonderful antidote to the morning commute.
If you’v had a tough day slip on your dressing gown, make yourself a White Russian and stick this on the speakers.
You’re going to love it.
