    It’s funny how off-putting a negative review can be. Pitchfork’s assessment of the new Arp is a case in point. The reviewer clearly didn’t like its synthetic sound and much preferred its predecessor, Zebra (2018). I loved that album too in all its evocative loveliness and I heard it as a significant leap from Alexis Georgopoulos’ previous work. I’m glad to say that my feeling for Zebra meant I made the huge effort of typing its name into the search bar of Apple Music and choosing to add it to my library. I then went the whole extra mile and actually listened to the album. I know, the things I do to write a review, right? And I’m not even getting paid for this, I must be mad. Anyway, yes, New Pleasures is more synthetic, but I’m glad to say that to these ears its a joy like its predecessor: melodic, elegant, spacious and really interesting to listen to. I hear hints of Yellow Magic Orchestra, mid-period Japan, even a teeny-tiny sliver of Penguin Cafe Orchestra. It’s music for a sunny day. If it’s spring, summer or early autumn where you are, go listen to New Pleasures. CB
