Douglas Dare

First up the most important question. What is that in his mouth? It looks like it could be some kind of bird or something. Not a good idea. This is Dare's second album and like many records comes out of what sounds like a horrible relationship breakdown. Dare sings about identity and the sort of fakery that goes on when someone plays around behind your back. Dark stuff but therapeutic for him I hope. Couple this with some neat electronics and bleak guitars and we could have an interesting record here.

Caroline / If Only

Ambient artist and stark pianist Douglas Dare has a new EP to unleash on the world, simply titled 'Caroline / If Only'. "Caroline" sees Dare take to the piano and write a crushingly sombre ballad that ascends and recedes most beautifully, while "If Only I Knew I Were Alive" is more overtly experimental, made out of looped beats and live recordings that would later be filled with Dare's own melodies. There are also some remixes from friends Rival Consoles and Throwing Snow. Alright! Let's just be happy!

Whelm - Nine Poems

Douglas Dare recently shared the poignant Whelm with all of Erased Tapes' friends and fans, a record focused around skeletal piano compositions that upended Dare's sparse and invigorating prose. Nine Poems is a supplementary work of poetry that shows Dare's talent as a writer in a number of different disciplines. It comes with a download of Whelm itself.
