    wistful, sometimes deadeningly soothing, sometimes abrasively tender, but always engaging and ultimately engulfing of us.

    This recording of temporal extravagances is meant to enhance with all the pillowy richness of high fidelity to bring you every fascinating hue and shade of sound. It’s soft focus aesthetics lull the mind’s ear into a state of woozy intoxication, comfortably unsteady underfoot.

    This could be the album you felt you have been entitled to, designed to be kept nearby.

    And so…
    recline…
    its night, late late night… without sleep

    the dreamtime has come and gone
    leaving us with perhaps an uncomfortable predictability
    suddenly we can no longer deny the shock of each moment

about

And now you can sit down. The follow up to Pinkcourtesyphone’s previous collection of negative mood music ‘Indelicate Slices’ has arrived and it is even more of a sonic banquet than its predecessor.‘Leaving Everything To Be Desired’ is a sumptuous serenade revealing with candor the essence of the many careful adjectives used for situational descriptions.

Pinkcourtesyphone swerves range out of another interior from sparkling dream-soft shimmers of strings, creamy arrangements, drifting drones, to dissected cha chas. Sometimes charmingly flamboyant, sometimes darkly wistful, sometimes deadeningly soothing, sometimes abrasively tender, but always engaging and ultimately engulfing of us.

This recording of temporal extravagances is meant to enhance with all the pillowy richness of high fidelity to bring you every fascinating hue and shade of sound. It’s soft focus aesthetics lull the mind’s ear into a state of woozy intoxication, comfortably unsteady underfoot.

This could be the album you felt you have been entitled to, designed to be kept nearby.

And so…
recline…
its night, late late night… without sleep

the dreamtime has come and gone
leaving us with perhaps an uncomfortable predictability
suddenly we can no longer deny the shock of each moment
