LP in gatefold sleeve with spot varnish; includes CD. Andrea Tirone aka Mind Enterprises follows his 2013 debut EP, My Girl (BEC 5161371), with Idealist, his debut album. Idealist encompasses the electronic sounds of Todd Terje, the disco of West-African inspiration William Onyeabor, and the rhythms of seminal New York post-punks Liquid Liquid. The album was partly inspired by a chance discovery of some music on a hard drive given to Tirone by Liquid Liquid vocalist Salvatore Principato, after the two crossed paths in 2011 when Principato produced an EP for Tirone's previous band. "I was looking for something to inspire me," recalls Tirone. "So I plugged it in and suddenly there were all these amazing sounds."
