"Recorded as Alexis Georgopoulos (the man behind the music of Arp) relocated from San Francisco to New York, The Soft Wave is expansive in scope, unfolding like a collection of short stories or filmic vignettes, each piece building upon the other. The Soft Wave incorporates guitars, piano, flute, and Ebows to create a dense brocade of sound. Georgopoulos even steps up to the mic for the gorgeous centerpiece 'From A Balcony Overlooking The Sea,' calling to mind classic John Cale and Brian Eno. Though Georgopoulos still has a knack for creating environments in which you want to recline hammock-style, he's also peppered The Soft Wave with soft blasts of blessed-out fuzz. Recorded to 2-inch tape, it's warm glow and blown-out formalism will undoubtedly appeal to a broad, sophisticated range of tastes."
