Later this month, London-based Greek producer Vasilis Moschas (a.k.a. Polygrains) will return with his latest album, Future Endeavours.
Future Endeavours follows 2016's Pleasure Coma LP with nine tracks that run the gamut from synth-pop to swinging beat outings, dub-tinged grooves, and post-punk electronics. The album's theme is the artist's relation to failure, as Vasilis explains:
"Failure is a bitter feeling experienced by most artists. Failure is also inevitable in life, especially in a capitalist society, where the importance of success weighs heavily on its members. But it is also part of the creative process. John Baldessari advised his students: 'Art comes out of failure. You have to try things out. You can’t sit around, terrified of being incorrect, saying ‘I won’t do anything until I do a masterpiece.'
Failure often can be more rewarding than success. But there's also Quentin Crisp's view which says that 'If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.'"
Ahead of the album release on January 25, Vasilis will be playing a gig in London tomorrow, January 10, supporting InFiné's Leonie Pernet. Following the release, he will also be performing in Athens, Greece, on January 26 with DFA's Larry Gus.
In support of the album, Vasilis has offered up a full stream of album cut "Life Makes More Sense When You Don't Get What You Want," available via the player below. You can pre-order the EP here.
