"New Pleasures builds on the aesthetic of his last album, ZEBRA, with 11 tracks of Balearic, industrial pop, dub and experimental."
"New Pleasures is the second chapter in Georgopoulos’ ZEBRA trilogy and it advances the narrative begun with 2018’s ZEBRA. Pastoral in mood, expansive in style, that record acted as a dawn on a nascent world; now, though, Georgopoulos drops us deep into the grid of the city.
'New Pleasures fast-forwards a few centuries, locating listeners in a post-industrial Sprawl (to borrow an expression from William Gibson’s “Neuromancer”) of concrete and glass,' the Brooklyn label explains, 'imbuing the album with the flinty glow of commerce, the sleek rhythms of industrialization, and the cool finesse of brutalism.'
We’re told that the sensation the music offers is almost rubbery; it makes you feel as if you could flex, bend, and squeeze your body inside out. Sonically, we can expect a vivid, deconstructed take on high-definition pop and ethereal psychedelia."
