ARIEL PINK ARCHIVES SECOND INSTALLMENT COMPRISED OF THE DOLDRUMS, WORN COPY AND HOUSE ARREST OUT 24 APRIL ON MEXICAN SUMMER
Today, Ariel Pink shares the video for ‘Alisa’, watch here. True to type, the brilliantly trippy, lo-fi video features 80s style graphics and includes live footage from the archives. Watch here.
He also shares the gloriously ramshackle ‘Gray Sunset’, taken from the re-issue of one of his seminal releases, The Doldrums , which features on the second instalment of Ariel Pink Archives alongside Worn Copy and House Arrest. Listen to ‘Gray Sunset’ here.
Representing Ariel Pink’s most classic recordings as Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, the name used for his one-man recording venture between 1999–2004, each release has been restored from the original cassette masters, which have been retransferred and remastered from single-track sources. The first volume of Ariel Archives was released late last year and featured new editions of Loverboy and Underground, plus the long-awaited follow up volume of rare and unheard tracks titled Oddities Sodomies Vol. 2. The Doldrums and House Arrest will be presented on double LPs for the first time ever.
Ariel Archives makes an effort to reckon with the remarkable volume of outstanding music Ariel Pink made during this time. Rapidly evolving from crude proto-punk experiments to an adventurous home-recording aesthetic that explored a wide continuum of pop music, Ariel Pink developed a sound and image that would prove highly inventive and hugely influential.
Releases in the Ariel Archives series will be expanded to contain much of the original material left off prior reissues that were made available in the mid-2000s and are now out of print. Expect further releases from Ariel Pink’s wondrous canon throughout 2020.
To celebrate the release of this second instalment, on Saturday 25th April there will be a launch party / pop up atWorld of Echo in London. A retrospective gathering from the vaults of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, with a DJ set by Tim Burgess, visuals and merch – expect the weird and wondrous to meet.
