Two years after Leaving Everything To Be Desired, sound artist and composer Pinkcourtesyphone (aka Richard Chartier) has released a new album called All Intensive Purposes which is out now via ROOM40. Check the full streaming below.

According to the press release, A decade has passed since Pinkcourtesyphone’s unexpected debut album ‘Foley Folly Folio’ (LINE)… time does fly in face of expectations, since expectations are just future resentments. ‘All Intensive Purposes’ is a lush compliment to Pinkcourtesyphone’s previous outing for Room40 ‘Leaving Everything To Be Desired’

Immured within the deep deep pink velvet lining of their sonic smudge satchel ooze forth the obsessions and peculiar delicacies that have captivated both Pinkcourtesyphone and audiences alike. Moody glowering, ghostly utterances re-situated, hissy, distant and sad, all the while light and tender. It is that Sound that is at the fluffy heart of a long string of successful though surprisingly varied albums. A new sparkling jewel that already gathers cloudiness in its facets. This album can be best characterized by one word — charm, well, maybe two words — questionable charm.
