Arp - Zebra [2LP]

A mutant offspring of diverse stylings, unlikely convergences, unfixed constellations, Zebra, ALEXIX GEORGOPOULOS'—aka ARP—fifth full-length album, is a post-everything symbiosis of ancient to future psychotropics, emphasizing points of connectivity between far-flung traditions. Zebra is as naturalistic as it is alien, disrupting outdated boundaries between musical traditions, hierarchies and genre politics. Using forward-looking production techniques and an idiosyncratic instrumental palette—analog synthesizers, double bass, Fender Rhodes, electronic and acoustic drums, flute, vintage harmonizers and tape delay—Georgopoulos proposes a vast, shimmering prospect, floralizing an array of styles and smiles—Fourth World tremors, vibey Cosmic Jazz, 80s Japanese production, floating kosmische drum atmospherics. DON'T JUST LISTEN TO MUSIC EXPERIENCE IT.
