Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - 'Only In My Dreams'

Biography

West Coast natives Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti present Mature Themes, the follow-up to 2010’s hugely successful album, Before Today.

Before Today was the band’s 4AD debut, offering the first sign that the intriguingly scatalogical music Ariel had been making for over a decade was finally ossifying into a coherent form.

Indeed, the lead song from Before Today - ... Read more in Amazon's Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti Store

Editorial Reviews

Compiling selections from Ariel Pink's massive bank of half forgotten cassettes can seem like an effort in vain, or a pyrrhic victory at best, as what is left out is equally deserving of a listen as what's included. The tracks selected for Scared Famous were all recorded at a key moment in Ariel's recording adventure, dating back to, or immediately following the recordings on House Arrest. All tracks recorded in L.A. between Sept 2000 and July 2001.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love is on the way home February 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Ariel Pink is one of those artists that straddles the line between bizarre lo-fi and.... everything else. Funk, pop, electronica, whatever.

And that shines pretty brightly in "Scared Famous," a collection of recordings from the era before Pink was "discovered" by Animal Collective and became a cult figure. But fear not, there's plenty of his lo-fi psychedelic sound here, speckled with crazy sound effects and schizophrenic stylings.

It opens with a vaguely Spanish pop intro, completely catchy and full of Pink's tinny yowling. But "Gopacapulpo" evolves into something very different: a sort of lo-fi Beach Boys psychpop song, punctuated by Pink's twisted experimental pop moments -- it seems he can't restrain himself long enough to do something really catchy consistently.

And then he injects a funky electronic edge to "Howling At The Moon," as he informs us, "I'd say nothing, I'd just stand there/and I'd dream my song/a song of pain/it's called 'Howling at the Moon.'" The song bounces between stretchy electronica and funky beats, with Pink singing falsetto, "LOVE is on the way home!" over and over.

After that, it's just a crazy quilt of all sorts of different styles -- folksy arty techno, growling festival pop, blazing sputtering fairy rock, hallucinogenic electronic songs, sprightly little lo-fi guitar rockers, swooning hazy psychpop riddled with falsetto voices, and even occasionally a grimy little rock number with moments of countryness.

And the last three are good pieces of work -- "Jesus Christ Came To Me in a Dream" is a quirky, reverberating little rock number, while "The List (My Favorite song)" is a celebration of mellotron.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Exploration November 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a journey this CD takes me on. It weaves me through the wonderful, exotic, scarey, dark fun world of Ariel Pink. The man is not afraid to try anything musically and with twists and turns in sounds in his songs and lyrics. This is what makes Ariel so unique. I know he has heavy influence from so many, such as A. Stevie Moore, Kinks, Bowie, Zappa, Michael Jackson, ....just too many influences to mention. I love the cleaner sound on his more recent CD's but there is also something that is very appealing about the low-fi sound that Ariel is so good at creating.
