New signing: Pearl Necklace + Pitchfork premiere




The story goes that synth-drone mastermind Alexis Georgopoulos, who frequently records as Arp, heard the music of electronic duo Pearl Necklace, aka Brooklyn residents Bryce Hackford and Frank Lyon, and passed their material along to Norway's revered Smalltown Supersound label, sensing a cosmic connection between the two entities. Georgopoulos contributes to several songs on Pearl Necklace's debut LP, Soft Opening, including this particular percolator, which uses its seven-minute running time to build a hill of squishy, warm techno textures. Soft Opening is out January 29 via Smalltown Supersound; in addition to Georgopoulos, the album features MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden contributing organ parts throughout.
