Ariel Pink, Black Ballerina

Ariel Pink Calls Grimes

LA indie pop genius and sometimes asshole Ariel Pink released his new disc, Pom Pom, this week. And it’s all over the place fucked up. In a awesome way.

Black Ballerina sounds like it emerged from the early 80’s. A little Bowie meshed with After the Fire’s Der Kommissar and Yello- after smoking hash. The whole album is an homage to the 1980s with primarily new wave echoes.

You got to admit the man is definitely making interesting sounds.

For a little something more traditionally pop, try Put Your Number In My Phone. Has a little bit of early 90’s Brit Pop hints to it.
