Pinkcourtesyphone - Indelicate Slices [Room40 Promo]

Put on the circuit via the Australian Room40-imprint on November 10th, 2k17 is "Indelicate Slices", the latest full-on album created by Richard Chartier under his artistic moniker Pinkcourtesyphone. Without much information to draw from on the press release we're diving straight into the musical delivery by the Los Angeles-based artist which opens with a "Romantic Threat" which is more of a threat than romantic in its three minute spanning score'esque and futuristic attitude whereas "Lure / Beyond Exactly" provides a spatial journey into Dark Ambient led by slow, hypnotic pulses, evil-worshipping drones and ominous clicks whilst the albums 24 minutes spanning main piece named "Minimumluxuryoverdose" starts with a thundering electric buzz which transforms into a fretful low end modulation accompanied by static crackles and cutting winds recorded on distant planets whilst spiralling, spooky lights flicker and shine on a faraway horizon without being able to dissolve the tunes overall feel of total de- and isolation for a reason. The "Date Of Loss" fuses cold, screeching sonic psychoterror with solemn, ecclasiastical contemplation, "Above Chandeliers" weighs in a long exploration of  Deep Listening Music presenting a feel of unrest and inherent fear alongside beautiful athmospheric strings and a quite unexpected, romantic end sequence whilst the short skit "Problematic Interior (Den)" is more of an excursion into a dystopian future tribal scenario and the final cut "In Voluptuous Monochrome" caters more electrical buzzing, expertly arranged bass waves and a hint of ancient dangers lurking in the dark, unexplored corners of our universe. A close to perfect album, this.
