3 stars As though we stood upon another seashore in front of a newer musical mixture. A Canadian rock project NEW PLEASURE were founded in Edmonton as a key-synth-percussion-based chamber duo influenced by Zeuhl / RIO / Avantgarde progressive scene. This eponymous debut creation was released in April 2017 veiled in a fuzzy, vague picture-printed sleeve (really wondering if they are a duo or not). And as the sleeve pic says, their interpretation for avantgarde sounds minimalistic, sometimes pessimistic, and obscure, dry- fruity like Krautrock.

Yes their avantgarde melodic / rhythmic strides tinged with post-rock convolution and Krautrock dizziness reminds me of an electronic / Kraut oddball Kuppulung. On the other hand, for example via "In Tongues" it's amazing we can hear some Zeuhlish mysterious addictive melody distortion. So wonderful deep, heavy, complex sound theater can be screwed into our ears as if they are not duo nor chamber but temporarily orchestrated like in "The Clock". Generally a chamber duo cannot do a lot but their "limited" work full of minimalistic ambience with various rock essence is fine. Looking forward to their next stage ... what and how they will create in future.
