And by 'full-length', I mean 'Paw Tracks debut'.

Everything on Paw Tracks is extremely lo-fi.

Mark (MarkR), Friday, 3 September 2004 12:09 (10 years ago) Permalink

i wouldn't consider Here comes the indian to be *that lo-fi...

BbetaA, Friday, 3 September 2004 22:25 (10 years ago) Permalink

This is 8-track, not 4-track, dog.

sexyDancer, Friday, 3 September 2004 23:28 (10 years ago) Permalink

Sorry I meant everything on the Ariel Pink Paw Tracks release, not Paw Tracks as a whole.

cozen (Cozen), Monday, 28 March 2005 11:08 (9 years ago) Permalink

I thought the Doldrums was way better. Worn Copy's really good but....too long and too scattered, or something. I'm still figuring out my feelings here.

very, very, very good. very good. this is what i always wanted Gary Wilson to sound like. Search "Life in L.A."

Ariel Pink for president! Just think of the ecology! The electricity savings! The thrift!

Momus (Momus), Monday, 28 March 2005 19:30 (9 years ago) Permalink

Revive to profess my undying love for Worn Copy. Even though this was apparently released on a CD-R at one point, will this still count as a 2005 release?

REISSUE

jack cole (jackcole), Thursday, 7 April 2005 09:12 (9 years ago) Permalink

"House Arrest" is still by far his catchiest and most consistent album. I can't really get into worn copy much past the point where he declares that "mankind is a nazi"

Felonious Drunk (Felcher), Thursday, 7 April 2005 17:23 (9 years ago) Permalink

Apparently, the person who originally realeased House Arrest is not allowing Paw Tracks to reissue it.

mitch dub (ano ano), Thursday, 7 April 2005 17:24 (9 years ago) Permalink

That blows. Between "Alisa", "West Coast Calamities", "Gettin' High in the Morning", and "Interesting Results" it's probably the best bedroom pop album this decade will see.

I know. hopefully the rest of the album will grow on me at some point, but after listening to worn copy 6 or 7 times, the second half of trepanated earth is the only thing on it that i really like.

The free track on the paw tracks website isn't a patch on anything on Doldrums

This is an incredible bit of music. Absolutely baffling but all the more wonderful.

dog latin (dog latin), Thursday, 5 May 2005 11:58 (9 years ago) Permalink

It's like the music you hear in your head just as you're drifting out of consciousness with classic rock radio on.

dog latin (dog latin), Thursday, 5 May 2005 12:14 (9 years ago) Permalink

So... classic rock through a drainpipe, then, and then irritation that it's not LETTING you drift out of consciousness, and then silence?

I've still not heard 'Ariel Pink'.

The fact that 'lo-fi' has been used NINE ZILLION TIMES in this thread with barely any answers...

... doesn't appeal.

But perhaps I am KNEE JERKING?!

Lucretia My Reflection (Lucretia My Reflection), Thursday, 5 May 2005 12:29 (9 years ago) Permalink

When I think of low-fi, I always think of stuff done on cheap instruments and played very badly on purpose. This is stuff played on good equipment, written and played beautifully and then recorded on the cheapest equipment possible.

dog latin (dog latin), Thursday, 5 May 2005 12:45 (9 years ago) Permalink

Yes but what are his INFLUENZAS!

Lucretia My Reflection (Lucretia My Reflection), Thursday, 5 May 2005 12:47 (9 years ago) Permalink

70s and 80s rock/pop. Lots of Roxy Music, Lennon, Bowie, Talking Heads, New Wave etc.

dog latin (dog latin), Thursday, 5 May 2005 13:19 (9 years ago) Permalink

and R. Stevie Moore

naturemorte, Thursday, 5 May 2005 14:46 (9 years ago) Permalink

Guided by Voices if they grew up listening to '80s pop radio instead of 60s and 70s classic rock. Plus he actually finishes the songs he writes.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Thursday, 5 May 2005 14:52 (9 years ago) Permalink

The Cure are his biggest influence

i like The Doldrums A LOT, Worn Copy though, i don't know. It's not as catchy maybe, except for ' Jules Lost His Jewels'

rizzx (rizzx), Thursday, 5 May 2005 14:53 (9 years ago) Permalink

dude, rizzx, you GOTTA get House Arrest. it's his best work to date.
also, dog latin, about the "played on good equipment" bit, when i saw him saturday night his keyboard player was playing a pretty shitty yamaha.

Fetchboy (Felcher), Thursday, 5 May 2005 16:02 (9 years ago) Permalink

ah i have that on my HD, together with another album, something with Lovers? Don't know, but I'll listen to House Arrest as soon as i get home. Pink's the man. not very listenable on car stereo though

rizzx (rizzx), Thursday, 5 May 2005 16:32 (9 years ago) Permalink

are all his CD-Rs going to be re-released eventually? He's got, like, 50+ or something, yes? Worn Copy is the shit..

poortheatre (poortheatre), Thursday, 5 May 2005 17:25 (9 years ago) Permalink

upthread:
"Apparently, the person who originally realeased House Arrest is not allowing Paw Tracks to reissue it.

-- mitch dub (w!mbis...), April 7th, 2005."
im not aware of the 50+ though.

someone was probably exaggerating..

House Arrest!

In LA Weekly article, he says he has "easily 200" cassettes lying around of albums and "masters".

fizzcaraldo (Justin M), Thursday, 12 January 2006 03:27 (8 years ago) Permalink

I'm sure his parents don't appreciate him leaving all those tapes around the house.

So, has anyone seen him live yet?

He's playing Knitting Factory on Friday I think; just wondering what the hell he's gonna do with himself on stage.

Suzy Creemcheese (SuzyCreemcheese), Thursday, 23 February 2006 01:12 (8 years ago) Permalink

haven't seen him live but "life in l.a." is truly one of my summer 2005 anthems.

dog latin (dog latin), Thursday, 23 February 2006 01:22 (8 years ago) Permalink

Going in a few minutes. Interested to see how he works in his guest backing band.

In Seattle it was just him and his 8-track, apparently. I really wish he would get a competent live band going.

Sounds more like Zappa than ever. They weren't lying about this being his magnum opus though. Pretty much untouchable record.

Pentenema Karten, Friday, 24 October 2014 20:34 (Yesterday) Permalink

curious to hear it. enjoyed "before today" and "mature themes" is okay but i really do feel like a substantial part of the AP appeal for me was having these weird pop tunes submerged in hazy lo-fi crud, i actually did feel like the production served his tunes really well, that whole aesthetic can suck for a lot of other bands but for his shtick i think it really worked.

marcos, Friday, 24 October 2014 20:38 (Yesterday) Permalink

I want to know what filters Pink uses on his voice, or microphones. The delivery on "Cocaine man has got a Portabello world" for example.

Pentenema Karten, Friday, 24 October 2014 21:10 (Yesterday) Permalink

Haha holy shit this record! Ariel really Zappa-ing out the very best of his tune-smithery and shenanigans. This beats BT and MT by miles and miles. And yet it's not a return to Doldrums either. I can see why he left off the Haunted Gaffitii part of the name for this. As it is truly something else, even for him and his extensive back catalogue. Continues to amaze, this guy.

definite classic, predicting a solid 8/10 from the p-fork boys (Le Bateau Ivre), Friday, 24 October 2014 22:09 (Yesterday) Permalink

So many songs on this that are instant classics. 'Picture me gone' for one. Amazing.

"Plastic Raincoats in the Pig Parade" is so so incredibly sad for such an upbeat song.

Pentenema Karten, Friday, 24 October 2014 22:29 (Yesterday) Permalink

Jell-O is the best song in the history of the universe right now. Whatever universe. The sound of the band Yellow combined with maximum riffage combined with teenage Cobain like lyrics ("mom and dad are normal, everyone eats white bread, that's why they're all dead"), combined with stadium rock, combined with Beefheartian style switches... I am perplexed: as a long time follower, Ariel Pink gone done it again.

This kind of sounds like the old ones, but doesn't. It's the best of his "new style." I've been wanting the same thing.

Pentenema Karten, Friday, 24 October 2014 23:26 (Yesterday) Permalink

All these descriptions are really making me want to hear this. I think he's always had a latent Zappa sensibility, so it's cool that it's coming to the fore now
