Pinkcourtesyphone - Arise In Sinking Feelings [Room40]

Put out on the circuit via the Australian staple that is the Room40 label on April 12th, 2k24 is "Arise In Sinking Feelings", the latest, roughly 63 minutes spanning album by Richard Chartier a.k.a. Pinkcourtesyphone. With the accompanying press sheet stating the album has been '...formed from places, plastics & partciulars during 2022-2023...' the interested and dedicated listener finds him- or herself surrounded by and embbeded in a large scale collage of Ambient- x Deep Listening Music-leaning electronic textures, bits of Field Recordings and fragmented, yet only occasional vocal samples over the course of eight brand new compositions, wildly varying in duration from a little more than a minute to exceeding the ten minutes mark by a big stretch - or two, with especially pieces like "Foregone Inconclusion" sticking out due its glacial, yet glistening waves of shimmering hopefulness whilst cuts like "A Stunning Blandness" bring forth a notion of all embracing and ever so comforting atmospheric dronings and "Gesturing At A Thing Until It's Gone" might not only provide a cheeky take on wizardry namewise put also presents an amalgamation of outerworldy, scintillating beauty, minimalist atmospheric crackles and an intro sequence reminiscing of slowly decaying, slightly off-harmonic tape loop structures as well as earth shaking low end pulses towards its end, all falling together in an enthralling and truly time dissolving manner which makes this one our personal favorite on this longplayer just to name a few. Go check.
