Arp – “Zero Zero” (Kim Fowley Cover)

Yesterday, we lost Kim Fowley, the legendary psychedelic/glam/punk rock weirdo and con man who managed to place himself at the center of virtually every rock-history advancement of the last 40 years. As a tribute, psych-popper Alexis Georgopoulos, who records as Arp, has shared a cover of Fowley’s ecstatically strange 1981 song “Zero Zero,” putting a… More »

Arp – “UHF1″ (Stereogum Premiere)

Mexican Summer is gearing up for a nice fall season, as the next few months bring heavy-hitting full lengths from Weyes Blood and Torn Hawk. Before that, though, they’re going to drop a new EP by recent signee Arp. Pulsars E Quasars is short but certainly sweet, as you might have judged from the previously… More »

Arp – “Pulsars E Quasars”

Alexis Georgopoulos, aka Arp, released his most recent album last summer, the psych-pop-indebted MORE. Now he’s set to release a new EP, titled Pulsars E Quasars, which sounds like it will be working in the same sonic space as MORE tracks like “High-Heeled Clouds.” At least that’s what it sounds like based on the title… More »

Arp – “Gravity (Peaking Lights Remix)”

Arp, aka bedroom composer Alexis Georgopoulos, just released an album called MORE that forgoes his former synthetic tendencies for a tactile combo of piano, cello, and guitar. But for their remix of MORE track “Gravity (For Charlemagne Palestine),” Peaking Lights infused Arp’s sound with electronic keyboard sounds once more. It’s a jaunty little Balearic number,… More »

Stream Arp MORE

When Arp (aka Alexis Georgopoulos) released “High-Heeled Clouds” earlier this summer it was a bit of a surprise. If you had listened to some of the older work from Arp and then heard that new song it sounds like everything was suddenly jerked into focus. “Clouds” was pristine, elegant and sounded fantastic, so it’s appropriate… More »

ARP – “High-Heeled Clouds”

ARP is Alexis Georgopoulos, an artist and musician who you may remember from the Alps or right here on Stereogum. He’s gearing up for the September release of his album More and has released the laid-back jaunt “High-Heeled Clouds” to give us a taste of what’s to come. Fans of jubilant organ, come on down.

Delorean – “Real Love” & Many Great Remixes

The situation is this: You should have Subiza, because we’ve gushed enough, and because you like good music, and because they turned a listening room near you into a blissed out crowd surf party where European dance music was splayed and sifted through a sieve of house and indie rock Balearic-influenced low blood pressure beat… More »

Cruel Summer: Stereogum Summer Jams 2010

Welcome to summer, welcome to free and legally downloadable summer jams. Time to CELEBRATE on ROOFTOPS. But you know, oil spills. And crazy people waiting in lines for phones for hours. And poorly officiated soccer games. The world’s topsy turvy, and so then is this mix, to reflect its time and place. It’s America’s weekend,… More »

ARP – “Summer Girl” (Stereogum Premiere)

ARP is Alexis Georgopoulos, aka the San Francisco to New York composer whose second album The Soft Wave is something I’ve suddenly found myself listening to on a regular basis. The mix of analog synthesizers, guitars, piano, flute, EBow (on 2-inch tape) works as elegant background noise as well as being unavoidably dense, enveloping, and… More »

Warm Up 2010 At MoMA PS1 Schedule

A couple of months ago MoMA PS1 Director Klaus Biesenbach — the person who organized MoMA’s ridiculously popular Marina Abramović exhibition, among other things — asked me if I’d want to help curate shows for this summer’s Warm Up series at PS1. You may have attended one/more of these Warm Up events in the past… More »
