"Sounds: Improvement Movement // It’s a Situation"

Improvement Movement‘s “It’s a Situation” is neurotic, meandering, and possibly a little psychotic (thought “psychedelic” would probably be a better way to describe it).

“We were forced to write this song when our previous company Culture Culture World Wide LLC was taken over in a hostile merger by IMPROVEMENT MOVEMENT INC. The song serves to illustrate one of the foundational elements of Improvement Movement’s ethos: Taking control of technology. We are excited to fulfill our contractual obligations by writing and producing 150 songs for Improvement Movement’s PR department over the next two years and hope to see all of you at the convention in 2019.” – Improvement Movement

There’s no easing into this song: from the first drum beat to the spacey, low-fi vocals and panned synth, this song is a serious sonic mind-trip.

Sit tight, close your eyes, and float downstream … or wherever Improvement Movement takes you. - Left Bank Magazine


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


This year has seen enigmatic psychedelic pop band Improvement Movement embark on a sonic expedition and release a series of mysterious singles, each as labyrinthine and whimsical as the last. Their catalog is, by turns, neurotic and playful. The breadth of the band’s sound speaks to the considerable experience of its members, a trio of record producers who started collaborating as members of Atlanta synth pop band Culture Culture before it dissolved last year. Left with the odds and ends, Anthony Aparo (guitar, vocals), Zach Pyles (keys, synth), and Tim Friesen (bass) started Improvement Movement and shifted their focus to creating and curating a new multimedia art project that would incorporate not only their music, but also the fruit of their forays into visual experimentation and a guerrilla ad campaign in which the band masquerades as either a demented self-help organization or a cable-access cult. Take your pick. Their live show features hypnotic graphic visuals and interactive video to further immerse audience-members’ in the group’s own dream-state.

During the fall of 2018, Improvement Movement plans on debuting its live show and releasing more singles, including a double single on 7-inch via Atlanta’s Chunklet Industries, (HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE THIS?/WHAT IS IT?). A handful of songs will also be released on cassette with Athens-based Teen Sleuth, and will be followed by more singles and a full-length record sometime next year.
