Published Jul 14, 2014Last year, former Elite Gymnastics man James Brooks started going by the name Dead Girlfriends, but having since changed the moniker to Default Genders (and landing on our list of the best EPs of 2013), he's now released a full-length album under his current moniker.
Magical Pessimism 2014 includes touched-up versions of the four tracks from last year's Stop Pretending EP, along with eight new ones. Brooks has been working on the arty electro-pop album since 2012 and finished it in 2014.
It was mastered by Recycle Culture. Brooks wrote on Bandcamp, "If it sounds good credit him. If it sounds bad blame me."
