Alexis Georgopoulos follows the recent release of new album More with an exclusive mix for tQ

Arp, aka hyper prolific New York-based artist Alexis Georgopoulos, recently released his new album, More, out now on Smalltown Supersound, a set of cuts in the classic singer-songwriterly mode, bearing the imprint of his city and its musical heritage. It marks a distinct change in Georgopoulos' output, leaving behind the electronic sketches of his 2010 album The Soft Wave and the classical stylings of FRKWYS 3, his collaboration with composer Anthony Moore from the same year, and follows a huge variety of projects he's undertaken in recent years, embracing sound installations and modern art among other things.

As such, his exclusive mix for the Quietus is a good indicator of Georgopoulos' wide-ranging tastes, setting late New York stalwart Lou Reed and sometime NYC residents Yoko Ono and John Cale alongside the English esoterica of Syd Barrett and The Durutti Column and, bringing things up to 2013, an appearance from Powell's supreme cut of dark, murky electronics, 'Rider'. Have a listen below and head to Smalltown Supersound to get hold of More.
