Erased Tapes are set to release a limited edition box set as part of their fifth anniversary celebrations.
Splitting their time between Reykjavik, London and Berlin, Erased Tapes has grown to become one of the most curiously creative imprints around. Fusing acoustic songcraft with left field classical flourishes and the odd - extremely odd - touch of electronics.
Toasting their fifth anniversary, Erased Tapes have commissioned a series of special releases and one off events. Next up, the label are planning to issue a box set containing five otherwise unavailable seven inches.
Lavishly packaged, the front of the 'Erased Tapes Collection V' box set contains an extremely unusual motif. Label founder Robert Raths: "When you look closely at the debossing on the front of the box, you will recognise the time and pressure lines of the seismographic disc on which the original mountain was drawn back in 2007, embodying the constancy and timelessness of the music. I very much like the idea that this collection is limited to a certain amount of copies. And if you own it, you're one of only a few people out there that can give these ten exclusive songs a spin. There's something beautiful to limitation and restraint that resonates with the whole idea of Erased Tapes."
Check out a preview of the box set below.
