“The main reason why I’m here is for a good kick in the ass to go and finish the next album. I went back to Minnesota last October [from Hawaii] and got this little house in the country. The plan was to work on the next album but the months rolled by and it kind of seemed impossible to do.”

Imo getting mad at this dude is like when ppl get mad at some artist for being rockist, it's like, "man, imagine if he was an ilx poster!!" And he does seem like an overly academic cornball. But everyone here listens to artists who espouse considerably worse worldviews on a regular basis. This guy is just an "lol first world problems" type easy target

ok so in the service of defending my "most of this is terrible"

which kinda ties up the terrible music you cant sing and the pomo smug shut the fuck up tribes in my head pretty well i guess

like no matter how you try to parse that it is pretty much the worst thing ever as far as i can tell

REVIEWS OF 'SONGS' (2006)
It took this Ariel Pink cohort five years to write and record his debut album, and only five minutes to become more annoying than Ariel Pink. - CMJ
For me, this is just too weird. The first couple of tracks make this the most skip-able album of 2006. -Subba Cultcha
Apparently, Maus spent five years working on this album, which is a shame because, frankly, its awful. -Vice
There isn't one song you could call 'good' on the whole album. -Music Zine
Overall, I can't recommend this album even as a novelty listen. Maybe I just don't get it. It seems as if Maus sabotages practically any hint of an interesting melody, lyric, or instrumental part with a blatantly grating one at almost every turn. -Indie Workshp
Maus's baroquely deadpan voice - and thats being polite - effectively spoils many a song. Some will hear a little Nick Cave in it; others will hear a man crapping out of his mouth. -Drowned in Sound
If it is supposed to be funny, it is not. If it is meant seriousy, then Maus needs some SERIOUS help. -Another Zine

REVIEWS OF 'LOVE IS REAL' (2007)
His music now lacks the surreal, jarring juxtapositions that made his earlier work such a rewardingly confounding experience. Maus seems content to sing his heart out instead of rattling cages, which is rather a shame. -The Wire

I'm a big fan of his, don't really listen to his recorded stuff that much but enjoy it when I do, his live show is really great

man he is so lucky to have so many horrible reviews of his music to post

what are the odds

i mean, i really do love this turn of Ariel Pink/John Maus being derided for years and then being regarded as heroes when the narrative changes. It took disco like 15 years to make that happen, kudos

froster the poophole (Whiney G. Weingarten), Friday, 5 August 2011 05:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

when did the narrative change

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Friday, 5 August 2011 05:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

when we fell in love with the sounds of misremembered memories, hoos, teen daze and campfires, beach haze and waterlogged VHS tapes, cassette hiss and long beach trips looking out of the back of the station wagon while soft rock plays, hoos. the intangible memories of innocence lost.

I've always liked Ariel Pink! and I certainly don't think he's a "hero"

blapplebees (crüt), Friday, 5 August 2011 06:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

because the narrative is based on what crut thinks

froster the poophole (Whiney G. Weingarten), Friday, 5 August 2011 06:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

well who exactly are you saying is touting him as a hero all of a sudden

blapplebees (crüt), Friday, 5 August 2011 06:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

i thought the narrative changed for ariel pink when he released a record that wasn't half bad, can't speak for maus

man everyone is writing it gets better songs these days

Peepee Soaked Heckhole (zachlyon), Friday, 5 August 2011 06:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

crut, sorry if im wrong (note: i'm not wrong, that's sarcasm) but isn't ariel pink regarded as the father of a genre that has its own iTunes features and countless alt-weekly articles and simon reynolds defense pieces and constant best new music traction

froster the poophole (Whiney G. Weingarten), Friday, 5 August 2011 06:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

and thusly he gets to play festivals like coachella and jimmy fallon even though like two years ago he couldn't even fill the knitting factory

I don't know; I don't pay attention to that noise. I just don't think people are doing a weird 180 on Ariel Pink like you're implying?

i dunno look at the pitchfork scores and get back to me

ok I didn't realize u were talking about p4k specifially. but, yeah, we're all well aware that pitchfork rides trends and is not necessarily fair or consistent.

Pink has been a hero of mine and any right thinking person with functioning ears since 2004 when Doldrums came out

I like rights for gays. It's funny and camp and macabre.

Whiney, why didn't you start this thread and just split? You're in "most tedious thing said by cranky ilx harpy whiney weingarten in recent john maus thread" territory.
