Morning Hour

We are very excited to announce the upcoming release of Ed Carlsen's sophomore LP Morning Hour on September 27th. Written, recorded and produced over the last two years in Denmark, Poland and Italy, the record finds Carlsen taking his melodic modern classical sensibilities to new terrain, fusing string textures with electronica and melodic piano with swelling electric guitar, all the while exploring a diversity of upbeat and downtempo feels. We'll be sharing sounds, visuals and tidbits about the record throughout the summer, so stay tuned!

You can pre-order a CD / digital copy of the album + stream the first single Words on your favorite digital platform here : https://orcd.co/ec-words

Snorri Hallgrímsson's Imperial

Written on his in-law's piano on Imperial Street in Toronto, this number was intended for his 2018 record Orbit. It was tough not to see it make the record as we fell in love with it, but came to agree that it had a different vibe to the rest of the album. A year after Orbit's release, we're excited to be sharing this one with you.

Here's the listen link: https://orcd.co/sh-imperial

Snorri Hallgrímsson - Orbit (Pre-order)

Icelandic composer/producer Snorri Hallgrímsson's debut album 'Orbit' will drop on June 15 and is now available for pre-order on CD/Digital from our Bandcamp store.

Recorded primarily at Ólafur Arnalds’s studio in Reykjavík, the album sees Hallgrímsson expanding his classical background with elements from electronica, choral traditions, and film music. The result is a stunning blend of haunting strings, distorted beats, intimate pianos, and the composer’s own ethereal voice. The album features strings performed by the Budapest Art Orchestra and engineering/mixing by Addi 800 (Björk, Sigur Rós).
