Release Info :

Yet another debut album on Resonant, this time from a Swedish epic instrumental duo whose dark atmospherics echo the work of the likes of Max Richter, Lunz, Sylvain Chaveau, Esmerine, Rachels and A Silver Mt Zion. The two young men that comprise Library Tapes only met for the first time last summer, when Per was called by a promoter as a last-minute replacement for the guitarist in David's band - even though they live in the same town. It quickly became apparent that their respective talents would work well together, and so it has turned out; in Library Tapes, David takes care of computer-related business, as well as playing piano and acoustic guitar, while Per plays the balalaika, both acoustic and electric guitar (with bow) and piano.

Both Per and David also feature in other bands, and Per is involved in film-making, poetry and a spoken-word project. They took their name after performing live in a library; their structures and approach take their lead from classical music, and the seven expansive, sprawling, emotive compositions on "Alone In The Bright Lights Of A Shattered Life" are effectively one piece of music split into subsections or movements.

The album was recorded in three severe winter days.
