Ariel Pink returns with a new album on November 17th, entitled pom pom.
Across its 17 tracks and 69 minutes, pom pom is unfiltered Ariel, a pied piper of the absurd, with infectious tales of romance, murder, frog princes and Jell-O. The record sees the Los Angeles native strike it out alone, returning to the solo moniker he has adopted for well over a decade when cementing his name as a king of pop perversion.
From demented kiddie tune collaborations with the legendary Kim Fowley (songs like ‘Jell-O’ and ‘Plastic Raincoats In The Pig Parade’ were written with Fowley in his hospital room during his recent battle with cancer), to beatific, windswept pop (‘Put Your Number In My Phone’, ‘Dayzed Inn Daydreams’), scuzz-punk face-melters (‘Goth Bomb’, ‘Negativ Ed’), and carnival dub psychedelia (‘Dinosaur Carebears’), pom pom could very well be Ariel Pink’s magnum opus.
“Although this is the first “solo” record credited to my name, it is by far the least “solo” record I have ever recorded.” – Ariel Pink.
pom pom is Ariel Pink’s third studio album for 4AD, following his Haunted Graffiti releases Before Today (2010) and Mature Themes (2012). pom pom will be available as a 2xLP, CD and digital download.
Tirzah released the EPs 'I'm Not Dancing' and 'No Romance' in 2013 and 2014, both collaborations with Micachu-blending garage beats, and down-to-earth vocals.
Tirzah likes hate & likes love but never feels either.
Her songs are about what she imagines those feelings to be like.
