Pinkcourtesyphone - Leaving Everything To Be Desired [Room40 Promo]

Put on the circuit by the Australian imprint Room40 on September 25, 2k20 is "Leaving Everything To Be Desired" as the latest nine track album by Richard Chartier's project Pinkcourtesyphone is dubbed. Hitting us with a bunch of phrases as song titles - e.g. "A Moth Seems A Monster (For E. Kitt)", "Another Interior" or "Elaborate Patio Dining" - we see Pinkcourtesyphone's new longplayer explore a deep, blurred and hazy amalgamation of dubbed out Ambient harmonies and dramatic, partially klaxon'esque and brooding DarkAmbient pulses of well cinematic qualities, brittle and otherworldly reprocessed rhythmic swells of unknown origin, intense, vitreous deep space music for exoterrestrial dinner parties, surprisingly intimate and beautiful piano elegies, solemn melancholia as well as a driving, ever spiralling maelstrom of midrange swirls like the one to be found in our favorite album cut "How To Abolish Romance". This is what we'd call a dedicated late fall album for a reason.
