Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti

Mature Themes



Released: 20th Aug 2012


lp + cd

Released: 20th Aug 2012


the rampantly eccentric 'mature themes' sees pink return to his unhinged scattershot roots, drafting tortured bizarro pop, strange sleazy mutant-ballads & willfully obscure waltzes.

'symphony of the nymph' is creepily seductive, 'schnitzel boogie' sees pink channeling zappa & singing about snacks , whilst 'kinski assasin' includes a line about Genesis P-orridge looking like pink's mum. alongside the insanity we have the elegant, drifting 70s pop of 'only in my dreams' & the beautiful, understated cover of donnie & joe emerson's 'baby'.  this is a unique, strange & compelling odyssey from the spectacularly incoherent to the chillingly sublime. "full of nonsense and wonderful ideas, further cements his reputation as one of the more vital voices of his generation. He’s a loose cannon, but he sure brightens the place up." uncut.
