Album Notes
Seattle, Washington’s Pleasurecraft has been transporting audiences and critics alike with a melodic, outer-space combination of dance, rock and pop that sounds something like an after hours party aboard the Enterprise. Using glimmering keyboards, engineered dance beats, and crunchy, jangling guitars, Pleasurecraft feed off unusual sonic combinations that create a swirl of dark and danceable pop—sitting comfortably somewhere between modern indie and 70’s synthesizer disco.

After garnering local and national critical accolades for their debut record, “Lost Patterns,” Pleasurecraft initiated its flight plan with people all over the Northwest by sharing the stage with the likes of U.S.E., Chromeo, CEX and a host of talented local bands; performing live on radio stations KEXP and KNDD; and raking in glowing reviews from the independent music scene. Their KNDD performance was also selected for 107.7 The End’s “Live from the Morning Alternative” CD released to benefit Seattle’s all-ages music venue, The Vera Project.

Now, Pleasurecraft has landed for a second time, bringing with them a massive wave of newly energized electronic indie pop. On their new CD, “This is a Blackout,” Pleasurecraft has again combined the unusual and brought outer space back to planet earth, where the sounds of space and the discothèque mix freely to form a deadly dance floor cocktail. Perfect for dancing all night or traveling all day, the songs on “Blackout” are infused with stories of digital love, futuristic heartache and technological breakdowns that will leave you packing for your next trip.

"The Seattle-based foursome gives its dance-at-the-ready, computer-leaning sound a human heart with guitar-thick melodies reminiscent of '80s art-punks
Joy Division."
- San Francisco Examiner

"Backed by perfect-posture beats, the foursome crafts warm-blooded electro pop layered with indie sensibilities...the result is a Brit-meets-Berlin sound that makes you wanna part your hair and your feet.
- The Stranger

"Seattle's Pleasurecraft take classic new-wave synth sounds and make them
their own."
- KEXP 90.3 FM

"Pleasurecraft are perfectly-named. Their music is like the world's most efficient waiter - there when you need something, attentive when you don't, and constantly, unflappably cool."
- All Music (AMG)
