Negative Pleasure is a band comprised of visual artists who are currently making music in Queens. Its members are Lionel Guzman, Ed Shawn Herrera, and Emily Wroe. The band combines all of their inspirations, and yet don’t always know why they are doing it; the band therefor bears the qualities of smoke and mirrors, as well as a departure from the creation of a physical product. It is common for them to use muted film as a literal reference during practice, recording, and performance. This video, made for Dossier by Barbara Anastacio, is a view of the studio and the process of Negative Pleasure recording their first LP.
