Ariel Pink - Pom Pom (2014)

kakvo remek delo...

Ariel Pink returns with a new album, entitled pom pom.
Across its 17 tracks and 69 minutes, pom pom is unfiltered Ariel, featuring 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.

From demented kiddie tune collaborations with the legendary Kim Fowley (songs such as ‘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.
Speaking about the record, Ariel says that “although this is the first “solo” record credited to my name, it is by far the least “solo” record I have ever recorded.
