PIZZAGIRL - SOFTCORE MOURN Vinyl LP
Continuing his propensity for off-kilter, emotive world-building, Pizzagirl’s sophomore collection delves deeper into the emotional hard-drive. Perpetually ensconced in the fault-lines between effervescent humanity and binary technology, pitting maximalist-pop sounds against claustrophobic production, Pizzagirl delivers his ‘millennium’ record, a post-Y2K release of aching pressure and digital malaise – all the while retaining the unique glint he has cultivated since the start. The tracks flit back and forth, blurring the lines between, bristling electronic jams and country-tinged alt-pop tunes. While the collection borrows from some of the sonic palette associated with past releases, gone is the postmodern absurdism and vapor-wave escapism, the approach is now more grounded. The result is an album that represents his most emotionally honest work.
