ARP on arp-driven songs




From Self-Titled Magazine: Funny story: as cosmic and Kraut-y as Alexis Georgopoulos’ ARP project sounds, it isn’t actually named after the synth series that left its mark on classic albums by David Bowie, Depeche Mode and Klaus Schulze. That said, the multi-instrumentalist/composer had a lot to say when we asked him about his ...

We have no clue—which means its as good a term as any for Torske’s somewhat indescribable (but completely captivating) sound. Much like the songs of his 2007 long-player, Feil Knapp, the bulk of the cuts on Kokning gently unfurl in a ...
