Rutger Hoedemaekers’ debut LP announced via Headphone Commute premiere
18th Nov 2020

After much waiting, we are super excited to finally be able to announce the debut LP from our latest signing Rutger Hoedemaekers with a first track being premiered today by our friends over at the wonderful Headphone Commute.  The album, titled ‘The Age Of Oddities’, is set for release on March 5th on digital and vinyl format, and marks the culmination of a decade spent by Rutger in the hyper-creative studio environment he co-founded in Berlin, including four years working closely alongside Jóhann Jóhannsson. Sonically rich, emotionally deep, and immaculately handled, ‘The Age Of Oddities’ showcases a brilliant new talent, its cinematic eloquence bearing witness to Rutger’s experiences composing for film alongside Oscar-winner Hildur Guðnadóttir and Jóhannsson, for whom the album is partly a eulogy.    

Of the track, Headphone Commute write: “There are many standout qualifications for this Dutch composer that clearly mark him as the one to watch out for next year… it will be an album you must hear.”

You can check out a first track, ‘The Invention Of The Moon’ over at Headphone Commute.
