British experimental pianist Tom Rogerson is set to release his debut album on Dead Oceans, but his isn’t the only name on cover—Finding Shore is billed as a full-album collaboration with avant-rock emissary Brian Eno, who threads Rogerson’s meditative playing through pulsating, droning electronic soundscapes. Prior to the album’s arrival on December 8, we asked Rogerson to compile a playlist of his favorite Eno tracks.
“Instead of trying to create an Eno ‘Greatest Hits’ I’ve gone for the pieces that have meant the most to me over the years, including some of the most iconic songs with which he’s associated, whether because of their commercial success or their conceptual influence. I’ve tried to even it out so it’s not too tilted towards any particular decade or style. (NB: Unfortunately, Spotify is missing some of the crucial collaborations, notably those with David Byrne and Robert Fripp.)”—Tom Rogerson
