Tropicalia infused fifth album by Vinyl Williams After collaging hundreds of paintings together in a string of new artwork, Williams combined over 25 paintings to create the album art for Azure; attempting to equally represent the complexly organic & decadent music apparent on the record. The first single "LA Egypt" is a wild harmonious odyssey, that will impact international radio & streaming services in April & May. Azure marks a point of higher equilibrium for songwriter Lionel Williams, employing far more restraint & rapidity than his earlier releases, as well as a concentration of unifying paradoxical qualities. The last record, Opal (2018) received critical acclaim by Pitchfork (7.6) and was listed on NME's best of 2018 list (93/200) - Larry Fitzmaurice hailed that "...there's never been any doubt that Williams is an adept musician, but his newfound skills as a songwriter and arranger push this album into the realm of pure pleasure." Vinyl Williams' earlier releases are cult favorites for their incessant bliss & driving rhythms, such as Brunei (2016) & Trance Zen Dental Spa (2015 - collaboration with Chaz Bear of Toro Y Moi). Williams is equally known for his interactive video worlds, 360ú videos, web art, and downloadable environments, inhabited by hyper dimensional palaces you might find in an ultimate future. He's created virtual music videos for Tears For Fears, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Spaceface, Morgan Delt & several other artists. Vinyl Williams' live show is a spectacle of pearlescent sights & sounds, with all of Williams' work combined & sync'd together in rapturous hyper-dimensional moments.
