NOTE: this article was written and published about a half a year before this dude decided to attend the notorious 12/6/21 rally in support of DONALD TRUMP that resulted in the desecration of the capitol building in DC. knowing now his true nature as MAGA acolyte i just want to say fuck ARIEL PINK and all he stands for. should be ashamed of himself.
LOS ANGELES-based INDIE ROCK musician ARIEL PINK is a hard one to pin down as his work is highly experimental, often utilizing odd instrumentation (electronic, field recordings, woodwind) with dissonant results. that being said, his music has a distinct classic pop sensibility. this keeps him in tradition with THE BEACH BOYS and THE CARPENTERS as if channeled through CAPTAIN BEEFHEART and R STEVIE MOORE.
super interesting, multi-textured music that is definitely worth checking out.
